McDonald’s Drops Egg Supplier After Video of Cruelty Surface

This always makes me sad- Aliyah, Neon Tommy

Chalk one up for the chickens. After animal activist group Mercy for Animals released videos of grievous mistreatment at Sparboe Farms in Iowa, Minnesota and Colorado, McDonald’s and Target dropped the egg supplier late last week, according to The Associated Press.

This is major news, since Sparboe isn’t exactly a tiny operation. The Minnesota-based company churns out 300 million eggs a year, and McDonald’s’ officials say the company is a “significant” supplier.
