Veggie Products Turn Vegan

Thanks to a campaign by Compassion Over Killing and others, top natural food companies are getting the message that eggs are an undesirable ingredient to include in their products.

Morningstar Farms has committed to reducing its egg usage by an estimated 500,000 eggs in 2009, which is in addition to the already 1 million fewer eggs in 2008.

And from Lightlife:

Egg whites are being removed from two more Lightlife products. Both our Veggie burger and Mushroom burgers are being converted to vegan products with a completion date of June 1, 2009.

This is going to prevent staggering amounts of animal suffering. It’s nice to see that products that shouldn’t have included eggs in the first place are now being re-formulated. Kudos to Lightlife and Morningstar for taking compassionate action. Link.
