Which came first?

It was the egg, according to a federal judge, who has ordered Tyson Foods to stop advertising that its chicken has been raised without antibiotics. Two of Tyson's competitors had argued that the claim was deceptive, since the poultry giant does inject antibiotics into its eggs before they hatch.
It's standard practice in the conventional poultry business - even the two other poultry producers who filed the suit acknowledge doing it themselves.

TYson will appeal the decision. Its lawyers argue the company's claim that its chickens were "raised without antibiotics" was true as the chickens were not treated with antibiotics after they had hatched.
Hmm, sounds like doublespeak to us.
