Recently, Subway announced that four percent of the eggs used in its new breakfast menu would come from cage-free farms, with future plans to completely phase out eggs laid by hens confined to battery cages. The national sandwich chain has already adopted 100-percent cage-free eggs in its UK locations. Subway is also watching with more pork suppliers who are phasing out gestation crates to confine breeding pigs. The news was applauded by the Humane Society of the United States, who thanked Subway for supporting animal-welfare and humane slaughter by choosing suppliers who adhere to less egregious methods of housing and slaughter.
