Wendy’s Pressured to Use Cage-free Eggs

HSUS kicked off a national campaign urging Wendy's to purchase cage-free eggs. Earlier this year, Burger King and McDonalds pledge to reduce their use of battery-caged hens' eggs. Wendy's International Inc. operates about 6,600 restaurants in the United States and doesn't want to look into cage-free eggs at the moment but is willing to work with animal welfare experts on different cruelty-free guidelines. Paul Shapiro, senior director of the factory farming campaign at the HSUS reminded that “Cage-free doesn't mean cruelty free, but it's a step in the right direction.”

Battery-caged hens suffer pain, fear and confinement and industries that purchase eggs produced this way support cruelty.

Once again compassionate consumers can make a great deal of difference in the life of egg-laying hens by substituting eggs with a compassionate plant-based alternative or at least buying truly cage-free eggs (as it can be a misleading term). It is important to remember that no matter where the eggs come from, the hens are ultimately killed once their egg-production decreases nonetheless.
