TACO BELL: Don’t let animals suffer. Go cage-free!
This petition made change with 166,880 supporters!
Taco Bell is one of the top restaurant chains in the US, expanding into the breakfast business early last year. With new menu items like the Waffle and Biscuit Tacos, Taco Bell is staying competitive with the nation’s breakfast retail leader, McDonald’s.
But there’s one area the Taco Bell breakfast menu falls short of the competition: cage-free eggs.
On factory farms, egg laying hens are kept in tiny, barren battery cages, unable to express natural behaviors like nesting, dust-bathing, and foraging. Each hen has less space than a standard sized sheet of paper. They may never experience natural light or fresh air, and will never leave their cages until they are gathered for slaughter.
Just a few weeks ago, Taco Bell’s main competitor, McDonald’s, announced it was going 100% cage-free, and set a timeline to phase out cruel battery cages from its egg supply chain. Burger King and Starbucks have set deadlines for their cage-free pledges, as well as the food service giants Compass Group, Aramark, and Sodexo. Several states have already banned battery cages.
Compassion in World Farming has worked with some of the world’s largest food businesses such as McDonald’s, Walmart, and Unilever to create and improve policies for higher animal welfare. Consumer demand for better treatment of farm animals is here, and many companies have already stepped up to the plate. Taco Bell has already acknowledged its customers care about animals, by introducing a new certified vegetarian menu. The time is now to switch to cage-free eggs!
Please sign the petition to ask Taco Bell to purchase only cage-free eggs for its restaurants, and set a deadline for the transition. You are a voice for animals!
