MFA Exposes Egg Farm Cruelty

A new investigation from MFA shows horrible conditions at one of McDonald’s egg producers.

Mercy For Animals’ newest undercover investigation reveals extreme cruelty to chickens at Sparboe Egg Farm—one of the largest egg producers in the US and a supplier for McDonald’s. The farm, which produces roughly 3.6 billion eggs annually, claims to keep its birds free from discomfort, pain, injury, and fear, in addition to other standards, but MFA’s video footage shows that dead hens are left to rot in cages, chicks’ beaks are burned off without medical attention or anesthesia, and workers physically abusing the animals. McDonald’s says it will no longer purchase eggs from Sparboe, which was issued at least 13 “serious” or “significant” violations by the Food and Drug Administration yesterday. A full report will be broadcast tonight on 20/20 and World News with Diane Sawyer.
