The video below is disturbing and might make you stop eating egg McMuffins. Undercover footage of McDonald's egg supplier Sparboe performing heinous acts of animal cruelty. I was always told that people just want the burger, they don't care how its made. This video shows how its made and its costing McDonald's millions in bad press. The group Mercy for Animals showed cases of animal cruelty at five facilities in Iowa, Minnesota and Colorado. Sparboe produces 300 million eggs a year, in regular, liquid, frozen and dried form, and ships them to restaurants and stores across the country.
Since this video was released McDonald's, Walmart and Target dropped Sparboe, one of the nation's largest egg suppliers. Bob Langert, McDonald's vice president for sustainability, said in a statement. "The behavior on tape is disturbing and completely unacceptable. McDonald's wants to assure our customers that we demand humane treatment of animals by our suppliers." Watch the video below to understand why.
