Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s Agree to Phase Out Gestation Crates

The fast-food chain sets a timeline for suppliers to remove the inhumane housing systems.

On Friday, CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee's, agreed to completely cease the use of gestation crates in its pork supply by 2022. The chains, which collectively operate more than 3,000 locations worldwide, began transitioning to group housing for its sows in 2007, but this is the first time CKE has announced an end to the phase-out. “Consumers care about how farm animals are treated, and cramming them in cages where they can barely move for their entire lives is simply out-of-step with those values,” says Humane Society for the United States Vice President of Farm Animal Protection Paul Shapiro.
