Burger King Announces It’s Going Cage Free (Again)
April 25, 2012
Burger King made an announcement today to go cage-free, which is a major step in the right direction for the fast food chain giant and hopefully an indicator to others in the sector to follow suit. Does this mean a safe haven for burger consumption for all us health nuts? Not exactly for two reasons.
Firstly, the term “cage free” only refers to the chicken eggs and pigs used. This does not apply to the beef used in the company’s hottest seller the Whopper, and all other beef patties used in their burgers, meaning the beef will probably still be full of antibiotics and growth hormones, and the livestock will still be kept on a strict GM corn-fed diet. (To learn more about this I STRONGLY suggest watching the documentaries Food Inc. and Farmageddon, available here at the Infowars store). Perhaps BK’s noticing the trend of Americans wising up to the industry’s deceptive tactics. If BK really wants to make a difference, they should consider going, if not fully-organic, at least with grass-fed beef.
I know what you’re saying…”In that case I’ll only buy ham and egg sandwiches,” which brings me to my second point. You might be waiting a while until you can be sure what you’re eating is actually cage free. That’s because the company promises cage free by 2017! What an incredible delay! Until that time they’ll likely continue with the same procurement of their products.
However, today’s announcement isn’t the first time BK’s stated they will clean up their act. In this March 2007 article, BK had announced the same cage free statement. So does it actually take 10 years to go cage free? I’ll let you be the judge of that.
In October 2008 the company announced they were taking trans fats out of its deep fryer, but what about all the other dangerous oils and additives that are damaging our human genetic builds? They slather about 200 calories worth of mayonnaise (containing genetically modified soybean oil) on almost everything and all food served, as far as we know, is not organic.
While going cage free probably appeases the likes of PETA and other animal rights activists, it’s still not enough for us true “foodies.” At least they’re not trying to deceive us with terms like “natural,” but they still have a long way to go before they lure me in as a regular customer.
The fact remains that if you want to be sure what you’re eating meets your individual nutritional standards, you’ve got to buy the ingredients and prepare it yourself.
