Burger King’s new policies

Thanks to the pressure by animal advocates and caring consumers, Burger King, the world’s second-largest hamburger chain, announced that they would begin buying eggs and pork from suppliers that did not confine their animals in cages and crates; moreover, they would also favor suppliers of chickens that use gas, or “controlled-atmospheric stunning,” before slaughter.
