Please commit to ending the sale of eggs from caged hens.
I just watched horrific video footage taken at a factory farm that provides eggs to a Walmart egg supplier. What I saw makes me sick to my stomach: birds trapped in sharp cage wire or under feed troughs, trampled by their cagemates and unable to reach food and water. Surrounded by excrement and rotting corpses of other hens, they can hardly move in their tiny cages.
Chickens are sensitive and intelligent animals who deserve better than this.
Confining hens in cages is so cruel that this practice has been banned or restricted in the entire
European union and many U.S. states.
Walmart has already agreed to go cage-free in the United States and Canada; yet in Brazil, the company continues to buy from egg suppliers that cram hens into cruel cages.
Even leading food retailers in Brazil, including Burger King, Subway, McDonald's, KFC, and Spoleto, have publicly pledged to switch to cage-free eggs. It’s time for Walmart Brazil to do the same.
Please take a stand against horrific treatment of animals by immediately implementing this policy change today.
