UPC: Urge MORNINGSTAR FARMS to Stop Using Eggs

UPDATE, 2/22/07:

Compassion Over Killing (COK) has more info available at Morningstar-Egg-Facts.com, including a handy-dandy contact form. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve feasted on a Gardenburger – since I made the transition from vegetarian to vegan, actually – but apparently they’ve veganized all but one of their veggie patties. Good stuff.

Urge MORNINGSTAR FARMS to Stop Using Eggs

Morningstar Farms, owned by the Kellogg company, uses eggs from battery-caged hens in its products. Battery-caged hens are jammed into tiny wire cages in filthy buildings. Their lives are totally miserable. For information about battery-caged hens, visit http://www.upc-online.org/battery_hens.

United Poultry Concerns is joining Compassion Over Killing and Vegan Outreach in urging our members and all compassionate people to ask Morningstar Farms – a leader in providing delicious vegetarian foods – to remove the eggs from its products. Tell them that many vegan consumers – would-be customers – await this positive change!

Whom Do I Contact & How?

Call the Kellogg customer feedback hotline at 1-800-962-1413.
