Many fast food brands have agreed to use cage-free eggs. What about you, McDonald’s?
Many fast food brands, including Burger King, KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, have committed to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs globally.
McDonald's knows that living in cages is miserable for hens. That’s why they have committed to stop sourcing eggs from cages in many regions, including the US, Canada and Latin America. So why not Asia?

WHY ARE CAGES BAD?
Hens in cages are prevented from performing many natural behaviors. They cannot nest, roam, or even spread their wings completely.
One battery cage can have up to 12 hens, leaving each hen a space smaller than a sheet of A4 paper to live in for the rest of their lives.
With the limited space, hens lack exercise and can develop bone issues: they are more prone to osteoporosis and painful bone fractures.
Humans’ health is also at risk!
Studies by European food safety authorities found evidence that points to a higher risk of Salmonella contamination in cage systems when compared to cage-free systems.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can be fatal on adults older than 65 years, children younger than five years, and people with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
