Controversy surrounds an alleged undercover video on Tuesday after Gemperle Farms said the video was staged.Last week, Chicago-based Mercy for Animals released video showing hens confined in crowded metal cages with rotting bird corpses.

After the video was released, Trader Joe's announced it would stop carrying Gemperle eggs.

Mercy for Animals says the video is authentic and will sue Gemperle for libel if it doesn't retract the statement.
