Sonic Adopts Cage-Free Eggs

Sonic adopts cage-free eggs, drops suppliers that confine pigs to gestation crates.

Last week, fast-food chain Sonic—known for its drive-in, carhop-style service—announced it is phasing-in cage-free eggs and will use pork produced by suppliers that do not keep breeding pigs in cramped, inhumane gestation crates. Along with its two new animal-welfare policies, Sonic is also now encouraging its chicken suppliers to replace inhumane methods of slaughter, such as electrified water stunning, with controlled-atmosphere killing, a method that reduces animal suffering. Sonic now joins other national fast-food restaurants such as Au Bon Pain, Denny's, and Burger King in its commitment to use cage-free eggs.
