Urge BOCA to Stop Using Eggs!
- Hi everyone,
I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I'm emailing to ask that you please
take a few minutes to Urge BOCA to Stop Using Eggs!
Compassion Over Killing <http://www.cok.net/> is teaming up with Mercy
For Animals <http://www.mercyforanimals.org/> and the Animal Protection
& Rescue League <http://aprl.org/> as well as compassionate people
everywhere to ask *BOCA*® to stop using eggs in its product line.
*BOCA*® was first approached in January 2008 about its use of eggs,
which come from hens confined inside barren wire battery cages
<http://boca-egg-facts.com/egg-industry>. Battery-caged hens are
typically provided with a meager 67 square inches of floor space per
bird on which to spend their lives---that's less than the size of a
sheet of notebook paper. These birds are so intensively confined,
they're unable to spread their wings, dust-bathe, nest or even walk.
*BOCA*® has long been a leader in supplying delicious vegetarian foods
to a growing market. Unfortunately, while its competitors Morningstar
Farms, <http://www.cok.net/camp/morningstar-farms/>Lightlife Foods
<http://www.cok.net/feat/lightlife/>, Tofurky <http://www.tofurky.com/>,
Gardenburger <http://www.gardenburger.com/>, and Garden Protein
<http://www.gardenprotein.com/> have either reduced the amount of eggs
they use or simply don't use any eggs at all, *BOCA*® hasn't yet moved
on this important issue of animal cruelty.

Thank you for speaking up for egg-laying hens!
