McDonald’s to Transition to Cage-Free Eggs For all U.S. and Canadian Restaurants

I’ve got to give it up to McD’s these days…. they aren’t going down without a fight

They are going to start serving breffis 24 hours a day.

They are using fresh and real ingredients.

And now, they are going to start the transition to using cage-free eggs throughout the United States and Canadia, here is the presser from McDonalds:

To meet consumers’ changing expectations and preferences, McDonald’s today announced that it will fully transition to cage-free eggs for its nearly 16,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada over the next 10 years.

Our customers are increasingly interested in knowing more about their food and where it comes from. Our decision to source only cage-free eggs reinforces the focus we place on food quality and our menu to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres.

McDonalds Cage Free Eggs

On an annual basis, McDonald’s USA purchases approximately two billion eggs and McDonald’s Canada purchases 120 million eggs to serve on its breakfast menus, which includes popular breakfast sandwiches, such as the Egg McMuffin and Egg White Delight. Since 2011, McDonald’s USA has been purchasing more than 13 million cage-free eggs annually.

This news follows other actions announced this year by McDonald’s USA to source only chicken raised without antibiotics important to human medicine by 2017 and to offer milk jugs of low-fat white milk and fat-free chocolate milk from cows that have not been treated with rbST, an artificial growth hormone.
