Help Hens (and Your Health)

Dear Friend,

With the largest egg recall in U.S. history under way, it's important to remember that the egg industry's cruel confinement of hens in tiny cages is not only inhumane; it can be hazardous to you and your family's health. An abundance of science shows that forcing hens to suffer inside cramped cages increases Salmonella risk compared to keeping hens in a cage-free environment.

And each of the nearly 280 million caged hens in this country can't even spread her wings, living with less space than a sheet of paper.

There's an easy way you can be healthier yourself and kinder to the animals: pledge to avoid eggs from caged hens. Thank you for all you do for animals.
