Petition Closed

Barilla, the world's largest pasta maker, has just committed to switching 45 percent of the eggs they use to cage free. It is a great step in the right direction, saving thousands of hens from being crammed into tiny battery cages. We're calling on New World Pasta company, the biggest US manufacturer of pasta and maker of Ronzoni pastas, to follow Barilla's lead. 

Write to New World Pasta and urge them to commit to using cage free eggs in their pasta. It is good for the hens and good for their customer's health, too.

Letter to
CEO, New World Pasta Peter Smith
Barilla pasta company just switched 45 percent of the eggs in their supply chain to cage free eggs, and I am writing to urge you to follow their lead. As the leading branded dry pasta manufacturer in the United States, New World Pasta should commit to using eggs from hens that are not confined in battery cages.

This will not only benefit the hens, who can't even raise their wings in battery cages, but will also benefit your customers as there is a link to salmonella outbreaks and battery cages. Battery cages are so cruel they have been banned in California and Michigan, Switzerland, and will soon be outlawed in the European Union. If Barilla, the world's largest pasta company, can switch to cage free eggs, surely your company can too.

Please join the growing number of grocery stores, restaurants, fast food chains, food service companies, hospitals, and food manufacturing companies, including Barilla, that are switching to cage free eggs. It is the right thing to do.
