    I'm glad to know that McDonald's has chosen not to do further business with a company that engages in this type of cruelty. Eggs from free ranging hens taste better anyway and are only about .07 cents higher in cost at my local Food Lion.

    ( I couldn't make myself watch the video, so be aware it could be graphic. )

    I wonder if other fast food chains will do the same.

    If this exposee hadn't been broadcast, McDonald's would have done nothing.
    They had no choice.

    Show me a video of imprisoned chickens? Look at a video of a partial birth abortion sometime and tell me how much you support "a woman's right to choose". Mark Twain once said "if you appreciate the law and love sausage you should never watch either being made".

    I just watched the movie Fast Food Nation..........Very disturbing.

    Even if forced to I am glad McDonalds did this, maybe other fast food places will follow.

    Seriously.. what the hell does partial birth abortion have to do with McDonald's decision to change egg producers? Are you trying to suggest that there is some moral equivalency between the two subjects? Do you think that because abortions occur that people shouldn't be upset or outraged at any other atrocity? Do you have a point to make about the actual article that the OP was about?
