Global manufacturer Sara Lee makes cage-free egg commitment

Eric Fortney on 5/25/2010 08:17:00 AM | http://www.blogger.com/img/icon18_email.gif

International consumer-goods company Sara Lee has announced plans to replace one million of its traditional battery cage produced egg supply each year with the more humane cage-free variety. The move is the result of a collaborative effort between the Downers Grove-based food manufacturer and The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

"The Humane Society of the United States applauds Sara Lee for improving the lives of thousands of hens each year with its cage-free egg commitment," said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS.

"Sara Lee understands that animal welfare is important to many consumers, which is why we're proud to switch more than a million of the eggs we use to cage-free,” explained CJ Fraleigh Sara Lee’s CEO of North America.

According to the HSUS, hens living in cage-free environments have three times more space than their battery cage counterparts and in that space they can walk, spread their wings, and lay their eggs in nests. All of which are natural behaviors battery cage hens are denied.

Sara Lee joins Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, Burger King, Subway, Red Robin, Quiznos and Sonic in making the switch—even if only partially—to cage-free eggs.
