Join East Bay Animal Advocates for a National Call-In to Lunardi’s Supermarket, Inc.
Call (650) 588-7507 & urge the company to stop selling battery-cage eggs.
As a high-end grocery chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lunardi's proclaims its purported commitment to excellence: "We can explain our prices, but we don't ever want to have to justify our quality."
Recently, EBAA documented conditions at one of Lunardi's egg suppliers. Shockingly, Lunardi's still sells eggs from chickens confined in overcrowded, wire cages.
Citing concerns over animal care, EBAA has contacted Lunardi’s numerous times this autumn without a single response. Moreover, Lunardi's is the lead competitor of Andronico's Market, which stopped selling battery cage eggs in October 2006. In order to advance the grocery chain's commitment to excellence, EBAA is asking Lunardi’s to stop selling battery cage eggs at its stores.
