Documentary Reveals Cruelty at Wegmans Egg Farm
The Voice - MFA's e-Newsletter 7.13.05

The Rochester, New York based organization, Compassionate Consumers, has released a 30 minute documentary depicting appalling conditions at Wegmans Egg Farm in Wolcott, NY. The video footage, filmed by Compassionate Consumer investigators, shows the inhumane farming practices used to produce eggs at Wegmans Food Markets.

The documentary shows up to 9 chickens crowded into filing-cabinet sized cages. Chickens were also found with their heads caught in the wire mesh of their cages, submerged in manure pits, and living in cages with feces and rotting corpses. As a result of profound neglect at the farm, some of the hens were unable to reach food and water; and many were found with untreated and infected wounds.
