In a move lauded by the Humane Society, Burger King has announced that all of their egg and pork products will come from cage-free facilities by 2017. While other chains like Wendy's and McDonald's claim to be making the switch, as well, no one else has put a date on it.
Obviously, a main concern for the future will be to hold Burger King, and the rest of the fast food industry, to this date and these goals. Once they are achieved, we must broaden our scope to ensure that all livestock are treated humanely and justly. We sacrifice these creatures to nourish ourselves. For that alone, they deserve our respect and care.
Oh Slate, never change!
