From Compassion Over Killing (COK) just a few months ago:

Earlier this year, Compassion Over Killing (COK) and Vegan Outreach (VO) teamed up with caring people everywhere in urging Morningstar Farms, a Kellogg subsidiary that has been making vegetarian foods for over 25 years, to offer more vegan items by removing eggs from its products.

We’re excited to announce that after receiving thousands of letters from consumers and after discussing this topic with COK and VO, Morningstar Farms is taking a very meaningful step in that direction!

According to company spokeswoman Kathleen Eckler, in 2008 “Kellogg is reducing the amount of eggs we use in our Morningstar products by a minimum of one million eggs. We’re committed to announcing even more new vegan products for our customers.”

By reducing Kellogg’s egg usage by more than a million eggs per year, nearly 4,000 fewer laying hens will suffer in factory farms each year.

Please call Kellogg today to thank the company for its compassionate decision and to let it know that you’re looking forward to seeing more vegan products from Morningstar Farms in the near future: 1-800-962-1413 (press 9).

More than 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.
