Wegmans should adopt cage-free policy

Letters to the Editor, University of Rochester Campus Times
Published: Thursday, October 6, 2005

While the University of Rochester is proving to be a leader on farm animal welfare, Wegmans seems to be headed in the opposite direction("Wegmans should follow UR's example," Sept. 29). Wegmans is refusing to follow the lead of University of Rochester and discontinue its sale ofeggs from caged birds. These hens are confined in cages so packed theycan't even spread their wings. They never touch the ground, nest or evenbreathe fresh air. Students at UR should be thrilled that their school has taken a stand against farm animal abuse. Wegmans customers should request that their store act in a socially responsible manner and endits sale of eggs from caged birds.
