Danny Wegman, CEO of Wegmans Food Markets -- Fortune Magazine's #1 Company to Work For in America -- recently said on TV news about his company's factory egg farm, "If there's a way to do better, we'll do it ." Please contact Mr. Wegman and ask him to do just that: ask that Wegmans phase out the use of battery cages at its egg facility. Ask that Wegmans follow the lead of Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Earth Fare who this year chose to stop supporting the use of cruel battery cages and now only sell eggs from hens raised in cage-free conditions.

Wegman's remarks come following the release of a documentary investigation entitled "Wegmans Cruelty" that revealed egregious cruelty to animals at the company's Wolcott, NY factory egg farm. 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 . The farm houses over 750,000 hens, and is part of the "Animal Care Certified" program, which the Better Business Bureau has discredited as "misleading."

Mr. Wegman has had the investigators who exposed these inhumane conditions charged with burglary. Ask that these charges be dropped. These investigators have done a valuable service in revealing these conditions to the public and provided Wegmans with a new opportunity to, as their motto says, "give their best" to consumers.

    Who are you to say that? Do you live in sixty square inches every day of your life? Are you forced to stand on a wire floor all day and night? Are you pooped on by people in the cages above you?
    Get YOUR facts straight. Animals are dying because of people like you. Get over yourself and try to make a difference in the world instead of sitting here letting innocent creatures die.
