Did your eggs come from tortured hens? If you shop at Safeway, the answer is likely yes. While Safeway competitors Target and Costco have pledged to eliminate cruel cages, Safeway still allows its egg suppliers to cram birds into cages so small they can barely move. This is animal cruelty no company with morals should support.
Hens used for eggs are crammed into wire cages so small the birds can’t walk, spread their wings, or engage in other natural behaviors.
Many birds become trapped and painfully mangled in the cage wire or under the feed trays. Without assistance, they sadly suffer and die.
Dead hens are forgotten and left to rot alongside birds still laying eggs for human consumption.
Deprived of any comfort, these intelligent, sensitive animals are treated as mere egg-producing machines.
