BOCA to Stop Using Eggs by End of 2009

From Compassion Over Killing (COK)

Contact BOCA and thank them for their compassionate decision. In February 2009, Compassion Over Killing teamed up with Mercy For Animals and the Animal Protection & Rescue League as well as compassionate consumers everywhere to urge BOCA to stop using eggs in its products. We're excited to announce that less than two months after BOCAEggFacts.com was launched, the company announced that it is indeed going to stop using eggs!

INFORMATION

A company spokesperson emailed COK yesterday:

I am pleased to let you know the BOCA brand will be eliminating eggs in all of its products by the end of this year. We anticipate all BOCA products will be egg free in 2010.

Please Contact BOCA to thank them for making this compassionate decision!

Approximately 95% of eggs produced in the U.S. come from hens confined inside barren wire battery cages so restrictive, the birds can barely even move, let alone engage in many of their most natural behaviors including spreading their wings, perching, or walking. Battery-caged hens are typically provided with a meager 67 square inches of space in which to live—that's less floor space than the size of one sheet of notebook paper. For more information about the horrors of egg factory farms, please visit EggIndustry.com.

Thank you to BOCA, and to all of you who joined in our campaign and helped bring about this victory for animals!
