United Egg Producers’ New Vision

United Egg Producers (UEP) has developed and released their new "U.S. Egg Industry Sustainability Vision" that, among other things, is looking into advancing industry and producer social responsibilities. According to the UEP, feeding a growing world with nutritious, safe and affordable food is "a critical responsibility" for U.S. egg producers. UEP plans to build this new goal on the premises of environmental stewardship.

The UEP is an unethical organization that, while claiming to care for animal welfare, environmental stewardship and human health, causes unimaginable suffering to egg-laying hens and their chicks. Debeaking, disposing of male chicks, intense confinement, abuse by workers, forced molting, transportation without food or water under any weather and painful slaughter, are some of the “procedures” used by this industry that chickens undergo. Moreover, eggs are high in cholesterol, a fact that doesn't make them a healthy option in a country that is plagued by heart disease. The egg industry also abuses the use of antibiotics, which contribute to bacterial resistance. Environmentally speaking, the egg industry uses enormous amounts of resources (water, grain and fossil fuels) that could be used for better purposes. It also contributes to water, soil and air pollution. While the UEP tries to put a front to cover the extensive damage it's causing to God's Creation, Christians should see through it and make a choice based on true stewardship of God's Creation.
