Wal-Mart “Great Value: Eggs All Cage-Free

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has confirmed that all of its private label "Great Value" eggs are cage-free. As a result, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has decided to withdraw a shareholder resolution it submitted to Wal-Mart last year calling on the company to disclose its progress moving toward cage-free eggs. Although cage-free hens may not be able to go outside and may have parts of their beaks cut off, at least can walk, spread their wings, and lay their eggs in nests as opposed to battery-caged hens who can't even spread their wings and are denied of all natural instincts.

While there is no need for eggs in a healthy well-balanced diet, millions of people in the US still consume eggs. Egg-laying hens are probably the most abused animal by the factory farming industry and a very small step toward alleviating some of their suffering is the transition to cage-free eggs. Of course, our faith calls us to be compassionate and merciful toward all creatures and the best choice in this case would be to stop supporting the egg industry altogether.
