retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Just a day after McDonald’s and Target dropped Minnesota-based Sparboe Farms as an egg supplier, citing undercover videos shot by the advocacy group Mercy for Animals that showed cases of animal cruelty, Sparboe said that the video depicted “activity completely at odds with Sparboe's animal welfare policies and do not represent their company or the high standards that have always been a hallmark of their operations.”

The company acknowledged that the video and a subsequent internal investigation “confirmed violations of Sparboe's animal care policies,” and said that it has “zero tolerance” for such acts, and that the people involved have been terminated.
