McDonalds to Use Cage-Free Eggs in Trial Study

McDonald's announced that they'll be using eggs from cage-free hens in 2011 in their Egg McMuffins and other breakfast offerings as a trial study. Currently McDonald's uses 3 billion eggs annually from battery caged hens and according to animal rights activists McDonalds in the US is doing everything possible not to transition to cage-free eggs as it already has done in Britain, where almost all of the chain's eggs come from free-range chickens and the chain has a commitment to use 100% cage-free birds by 2010.

McDonald's, by not implementing a cage-free regulation, shows no compassion for hens. Once more, profit trumps compassion for God's animals. This is a clear example where the consumer has the power to bring change and alleviate the suffering of hens by not supporting companies that still use eggs in their products.
