WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, animal protection
charity Compassion Over Killing released a new investigation inside an egg
factory farm owned by Michael Foods, a company that supplies eggs to Dunkin'
Donuts. While employed at the facility in August, a COK investigator used a
hidden camera to document conditions for hens in this factory farm, which
confines more than one million birds inside barren wire battery cages.
Footage from inside Michael Foods shows:
-- Hens immobilized in the wires of
their cages, unable to access food or water
-- Decomposing and "mummified"
corpses left in cages with live birds
-- A Michael Foods employee
decapitating a hen
-- Birds suffering from overcrowding, severe feather
loss, and untreated injuries
Michael Foods is one of the country's
largest egg producers, supplying eggs to several national restaurant chains.
