On March 19, QSR ran "Humane Society Asks McDonald's to Catch up to Its Competitors."

McDonald's responded with the following statement:

McDonald's is committed to animal welfare and has a recognized track record of making a difference in this area, working with independent experts, organizations, and suppliers.

We are constantly working with suppliers and experts to seek what additional sustainable steps we can take. With eggs, that means we source from suppliers with high standards and continuous improvement efforts on food safety, environmental protection, worker well-being, and responsible animal welfare practices.
