Abstract Dioxin levels in organic eggs can be controlled by regulating outdoor run use via the moment that the barn doors are opened and by providing feed and water inside. In case of high environmental pollution the soil in the outdoor run needs to be replaced. Thanks to a dioxin monitoring protocol, action can be taken as soon as levels approach threshold levels
