BOCA to Stop Using Eggs by End of 2009

Critter News

On March 19, 2009 a company representative emailed Compassion Over Killing: "…I am pleased to let you know the BOCA brand will be eliminating eggs in all of its products by the end of this year. Totally missed this story from about a month ago. We anticipate all BOCA products will be egg free in 2010." By removing eggs from their ingredient list, BOCA is withdrawing financial support for factory farms that use battery-cages. They are striking a blow against the cruel egg industry.
