Fast food chain Wendy’s has announced that it will require its U.S. and Canadian pork suppliers to outline plans to phase out the use of sow gestation stalls.
In a statement on its web site, Wendy’s says that confining sows in gestation stalls is not sustainable over the long term and that “moving away from this practice is the right thing to do.”
The president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, Wayne Pacelle, praised the move, saying it “provides further evidence that we are on the pathway toward ending this inhumane practice once and for all.”
