Dutch McDonald's bans meat from castrated pigs
The fastfood chain McDonald's has announced that it is to stop selling meat
from castrated pigs in the Netherlands.
"For pork in our products EggMcMuffin and Big Tasty
Bacon we will switch to animal friendly pork," commented spokesman Dirk van den
Boogaart from McDonald's Netherlands.
"This is because we switched
to a different supplier. This supplier is from the UK and will supply meat from
British pigs which are not castrated as from the end of October."
added that the decision was made for McDonald's in the Netherlands. "McDonald's
Europe does want to discuss the issue as well though."
Dutch animal welfare activists
have applauded the move of McDonald's.
