This Week's Video
On August 20, ABC World News reported on the nationwide egg recall of
close to half a million eggs. Fortunately, ABC focused on the living
conditions of hens on factory farms. Nathan Runkle from Mercy for
Animals (MFA) was featured in the segment where he explained the
unsanitary conditions these hens live in while undercover video taken by
at a farm in Maine that is connected to one of the brands being recalled
was shown. ABC's reporter said "Critics say it's likely not the case and
that there are just a few rotten eggs in the poultry business.
Conditions like these are fairly common."
