HSUS Letter to McDonald’s

The HSUS submits a letter to McDonald’s encouraging the corporation to switch to cage-free eggs.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has submitted a shareholder resolution to fast-food giant McDonald’s, asking that the McDonald’s franchises begin making the transition to cage-free eggs, on both ethical and safety grounds. Currently, all of the US McDonald’s restaurants use only eggs from caged hens, though all of the English franchises are cage-free, and the European Union (EU) franchises are soon to follow by the end of the year. “Piling hens into cages so small the birds can’t even extend their wings, is both an animal welfare and food safety threat,” said Dr. Michael Greger, the director of public health and animal agriculture for the HSUS. “It’s time for the McDonald’s to follow the lead of major companies and phase-in cage-free eggs, which are better for animals and safer for consumers.”
