Would you like to get the egg out of BOCA’s veggie burgers? Compassion Over Killing, Mercy For Animals, and the Animal Protection & Rescue League have joined forces to do just that—and invite you to lend a hand. The meat-free burger brand, first called upon to change its practices more than a year ago, concocts its vegetarian creations with eggs laid by battery-caged hens. These caged chickens, living in a space the size of a sheet of paper, are unable to bathe, nest, or walk. While many industry competitors, including Morningstar Farms, Lightlife Foods, Gardenburger, and Garden Protein have reduced or eliminated eggs from their product lines, BOCA has made little progress in the way of introducing vegan options. Help this campaign spread its wings by submitting your comments online. What an eggcellent idea!
