Tell Morningstar Farms "No eggs in veggie products!"

This was posted as a bulletin by a MySpace pal. We need to reduce the demand for factory farmed hens/eggs. And when we eat a vegetarian burger, we shouldn't have to worry that the hens used to produce the eggs that are absurdly added to products were mistreated! "If you're gonna go vegetarian then just go vegan!"

Bulletin:

Our friends at Compassion Over Killing are trying to get Morningstar Farms
to stop using eggs in their product line.

Morningstar Farms®, which is owned by the Kellogg® company, is currently
purchasing eggs produced by hens confined inside barren wire battery cages.
Battery caged hens are typically provided with a meager 67 square inches of
space in which to live—that’s less than the size of one sheet of notebook
paper. These birds are so intensively confined for their entire lives that
they are denied their natural inclinations to spread their wings, perch,
preen, or even walk.

Morningstar Farms® has long been a leader in supplying delicious vegetarian
foods to a growing market. Let them know that the market also wants them to
remove their support from the cruel battery egg industry. Please encourage
them to join with companies like Gardenburger®, which last year announced it
has taken eggs out of all its products except for one private-sourced item.

Take action today by submitting your comments online! It is important that
Morningstar be contacted by THIS FRIDAY!

Please also call Kellogg®’s customer feedback hotline:
1-800-962-1413.

Hours (Eastern Standard Time):

* Mon. - Thurs.: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
* Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

1. Say: “Representative.”
2. Press 2 for product information
3. Press 1 for general inquiries

It is crucial that Morningstar Farms® hear from consumers like you—please
forward this message widely! Thank you for helping make a difference for
egg-laying hens.
