Safeway: Stop Selling Eggs from Animals Crammed in Cruel Cages
This petition made change with 66,878 supporters!
Safeway is one of the nation’s leading retailers. But Safeway is no leader among the growing number of companies rejecting cruel battery cages for egg-laying hens.
Stuffed into cages so small the birds can’t walk, spread their wings, or engage in other natural behaviors, hens on egg factory farms are subjected to unspeakable cruelty and neglect. Each bird has less floor space than the size of a sheet of notebook paper. Many birds become trapped and painfully mangled in the cage wire or under feed trays. Dead hens are often left to rot alongside birds still laying eggs for human consumption.
Competitors of Safeway, including Ahold, CVS, Target, Costco, and BJ's Wholesale Club, have already made public commitments to eliminate cages. It’s high time Safeway listened to its consumers and adopted a cage-free egg policy.
Please sign this petition asking Safeway to stop cramming birds into cruel cages and to set a firm deadline for going 100 percent cage-free in all its stores and affiliate grocers.
The animals need your voice!
