|Organizer/Author||East Bay Animal Advocates|
Andronico's Market, a grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, claims that it is committed to the highest standards of animal husbandry and plays an important role in promoting humane business practices. Yet it still sells eggs from hens confined in battery cages, despite the recent evidence provided by East Bay Animal Advocates, which documented abusive conditions at NuCal, an Andronicos brand-name egg supplier. The undercover footage shows intensive confinement of chickens inside a series of barren, windowless sheds where thousands of hens are confined in wire cages so small that they cannot flap their wings.
In order to advance the companys so-called commitment to excellence, EBAA is asking Andronico's to adopt a cage-free egg policy. Call Andronico's Market at (510) 649-6759 between 9 AM and 5 PM PST this Friday.
