Brands: (Wimpy, Mugg & Bean, Steers, etc.): Serve Us Cage-Free Eggs in your
Dear Leadership of Famous Brands
Famous Brands (Wimpy, Mugg & Bean,
Steers, House of Coffees, etc.) claims to care about the underprivileged
communities in which they operate through the implementation of initiatives
that are impactful. Yet Famous Brands does not extend this care to the millions
of egg-laying hens suffering in its global supply chain.
Famous Brands refuses to end its support of
farms that confine hens in tiny, filthy cages. These cages are so small and
packed with birds that hens cannot do anything that is natural or important to
them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in
fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens,
exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates.
Hundreds of companies around the world are discarding
cages. Global commitments to end cruel cages are being made by some of the
largest companies in the world, including General Mills, Unilever, Nestle,
Lidl, Aldi, Wyndham Worldwide, McDonalds, InterContinental Hotels, Aramark,
Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even low-end fast food companies and US
prisons are moving away from this horrifying practice. Famous Brands, however,
has failed to join this movement towards better treatment of animals globally.
Famous Brands cites integrity, humility,
innovation and quality as some of the core beliefs they identify with, yet it
has failed in making any meaningful improvement towards the attainment of humane
animal welfare standards. The world is now looking to Famous Brands to meet
basic animal welfare standards and to lead the global restaurant industry in
abolishing some of the worst factory farm abuses.
Please sign this petition to tell Famous
Brands that you will not be purchasing any of its products until it stops
supporting this heinous animal abuse.
