IHOP - International House of Pain (from HSUS - warning ANIMAL CRUELTY)
International House of Pain for Egg-Laying Hens

The HSUS has a long track record of successful work with food companies on developing forward-thinking animal welfare policiesadvancements that result in meaningful improvements for animals such as ending the use of extreme confinement systems like battery cages and gestation crates.

Animal welfare should be part of the Corporate Social Responsibility portfolio for any major corporation, and increasingly, companies are heeding the call.

SEE VIDEO AT LINK!

Sometimes, our attempts at positive dialogue with a company break down and our last resort is a public campaign. While we always prefer to work cooperatively with businesses, on occasion even years of dialogue can yield no benefit for animals and it becomes necessary to publicly call on a company to do the right thing.

Thats why today were launching a national campaign urging IHOP to start switching some of its eggs away from battery cage confinement to cage-freea modest step that many of the companys competitors have already taken. Despite more than two years of private discussions, IHOP refuses to change the fact that all of the eggs it uses come from hens confined in cages so small they cant even spread their wings.

To make this matter even more urgent, yesterday IHOPs primary egg supplier, Michael Foods, was the subject of a gut-wrenching undercover expos documenting egregious animal cruelty and severe food safety concerns. The animal protection organization that conducted the investigation, Compassion Over Killing, videotaped hens forced to live in cages with the decomposing corpses of their cage-mates, sick and injured hens, live and dead hens stuck in their cages wires, and disturbingly filthy conditions.
