Stop Selling Eggs from Cruel Cage Farms

I am a proud New Jerseyan and have been shopping at our local ShopRites for as far back as I can remember. Even though some find them annoying, I even love those Can Can Sale commercials! Unfortunately, my favorite supermarket has let me down. I was shocked to learn ShopRite still confines egg-laying hens in cruel battery cages. Other retailers like Safeway, Kroger, BJ's Wholesale Club, Stop & Shop, and Trader Joe's have committed to completely move away from these outdated and inhumane cages.
The majority of the eggs ShopRite sells are produced in factory farms where hens are forced to live in a space the size of an iPad. These intelligent animals are not even afforded the opportunity to extend their limbs. This is a terrible way to treat animals in our food supply, and I will no longer shop at ShopRite until it gets on board and changes with the times.
ShopRite has recently stated it will go cage-free in its private-label eggs — this partial commitment is lazy and misleading and only leaves ShopRite farther behind its competitors. ShopRite is continuously attempting to deceive New Jersey consumers, and we will not tolerate it any longer.
Please sign my petition urging ShopRite to end its support of farms that cage egg-laying hens.
