New California animal-welfare rules could make bacon harder to find, AP reported.

They require more space for breeding pigs and veal calves and will take effect next January.

A change in animal-welfare rules could make bacon difficult to find and more expensive to buy, reports say.At the beginning of next year, California will enforce the welfare proposition, which was approved by voters in 2018. The Farm Animal Confinement Proposition requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens, and veal calves. The idea is that all of those animals should have sufficient space to stretch out their wings, claws, and paws, as Insider's Hilary Brueck reported. Welfare campaigners have been pushing for the change for years. Back in 2018, Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, said in a statement: "California voters have sent a loud and clear message that they reject cruel cage confinement in the meat and egg industries."
