Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. Follow Burger King’s Lead on Animal Welfare

October 2007

In June 2006, PETA initiated discussions with the executives of CKE Restaurants, the company that owns fast-food giants Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. One year later, CKE implemented a strong new animal welfare plan that will significantly improve the lives and deaths of some of the pigs and chickens whose flesh and eggs are used in Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. restaurants. 

This follows on the heels of Burger King’s recent animal welfare improvements and marks another victory in PETA’s ongoing battle to eliminate the most horrific abuses of farmed animals.
