PETITION: Trader Joe's ban gestation crates
TARGET: Dan Bane- CEO of Trader Joe's
The purpose of this petition is to ask Trader Joe’s to eliminate gestation crates from its supply chain.
Please sign our petition. Many other restaurants, food chains, and retailers including McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Cracker Barrel, Quiznos, Costco, Whole Foods, Kroger’s and Walmart have taken action to ban gestation crates and we are urging Trader Joe's to do the same. We are asking them to commit to a 100% gestation crate free supply chain.
Gestation crates are widely recognized as cruel and inhumane. They confine the sow, the breeding mother pigs throughout her multiple month pregnancy in a space so small that she can't turn around. That is kind of the point as they don't want them to be able to move. The pigs are subsequently transferred into another crate to give birth, are then re-impregnated and put back into a gestation crate. This inhumane cycle repeats, pregnancy after pregnancy, for virtually their entire lives, adding up to years of immobilization.
Please sign and ask Trader Joe's to ban the use of gestation crates.
