Wegmans receives 2,100 protest eggs
Democrat & Chronicle, 4/18/06

Local activists delivered 2,100 plastic eggs to Wegmans Food Markets Inc.'s corporate headquarters on Brooks Avenue on Monday. Each egg contained the name of a shopper who opposes Wegmans egg farming practices.

Volunteers, including members of the University of Rochester vegetarian organization UR-Veg, collected signatures and comments outside Wegmans stores nationwide, as well as online, since October 2005. The campaign is part of an ongoing effort to force Wegmans to stop using battery cages, which critics say are cruel, at its 750,000-chicken farm in Wolcott, Wayne County.

Wegmans spokeswoman Jo Natale said the company typically answers all consumer communication, and will likely respond to local people who submitted their concerns.

How responses would be made and whether the company will respond to those from states and countries where Wegmans does not have stores has not been decided, she said.
