EBAA calls on Longs Drug Stores to ban battery-cage eggs

Today, EBAA called on Walnut Creek, Calif.-based Longs Drug Stores, a Fortune 500 drugstore chain on the West Coast, to stop selling eggs from chickens raised in cages. Recently, EBAA obtained footage of a battery-cage egg supplier to Longs Drug Stores. The California-based egg purveyor, which markets its eggs under the notorious "Foster Farms" label, houses chickens in intensive confinement. Read an excerpt from EBAA's letter to Longs CEO Warren F. Bryant:

"EBAA would be delighted to work on the implementation of an exclusive cage-free egg policy with Longs Drug Stores. By adopting a cage-free egg policy, your company would join a national network of cities, educational institutions, farmers, and retailers that have committed to higher poultry welfare standards for egg-laying hens."

EBAA showers Lunardi's Headquarters with flowers

As the Lunardi’s Abuse Campaign moves forward, EBAA representatives visited the grocery company’s headquarter offices in South San Francisco today to personally deliver an open letter to CEO Paul Lunardi and General Manager Tony Lucia. EBAA did not miss the opportunity to share its summertime cheer with a special delivery of flowers for the Lunardi’s main offices.

Read EBAA's letter to Lunardi’s Supermarket:

Paul Lunardi and Tony Lucia
Lunardi's Supermarket, Inc.
432 North Canal Street, Suite 22

South San Francisco, Calif. 94080-4666

Dear Mr. Lunardi and Mr. Lucia:

On behalf of East Bay Animal Advocates, it is our pleasure to provide you with floral decorations for your lovely office.

As you know, concerned individuals across the USA have contacted Lunardi’s since October 2006, requesting that your company adopt an exclusively cage-free egg policy.

New information related to one of Lunardi’s cage egg-layer suppliers has surfaced. We would like to meet with you to discuss this important information and develop a timeline for the implementation of a new egg policy at your Bay Area stores.

We greatly look forward to opening a positive conversation with you both. Please feel free to contact us via email [] or at (925) 487-4419.

Best Regards,

Christine Morrissey & Eileen Mello
