Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. Focus on Animal Welfare

PETA announced earlier this month that Hardee's and Carl's Jr. fast-food chains will begin purchasing eggs and pork from suppliers who do not keep animals in cages or crates. The company has agreed to immediately: Obtain 15% of the pig meat it buys from suppliers that don’t use gestation crates, increasing the amount to 25% by 2009; have 2% of the eggs it uses be from hens that are not housed in battery cages, by July 1, 2008; and inform poultry suppliers that it will give consideration to those who actively explore and test controlled-animal stunning systems. CKE will also use a 3rd party auditor to ensure the changes have occurred.

To read the full article please visit Hardee's, Carl's Jr. and PETA reach deal.

It's good news for God's Creation whenever an industry takes a step toward alleviating animal suffering. Let's hope that the improvement continues and one day God's animals can be free of human exploitation.
