Response to complaint about eggs in Morningstar Farms Products

I emailed them about my displease over eggs from caged hens in their products.  This is the response I got:

"Thank you for contacting us about the use of eggs in our Morningstar Farms® and Worthington® products. We appreciate the opportunity to explain our position regarding the source of egg ingredients used in our products.

Our goal is to ensure that consumers have a choice when considering our brands. We currently offer several Morningstar Farms® and Worthington® products that do not contain eggs and are considered vegan. Some of these products are recent additions formulated to reduce our dependence on traditionally sourced eggs. Our Morningstar Farms® vegan products include:

              Meal Starters™ Chik'n Strips
              Meal Starters™ Steak Strips
              Grillers® Original Vegan Burger
              Meal Starters™ Grillers® Recipe Crumbles™
              Meal Starters™ Sausage-Style Recipe Crumbles™
              Vegan Burger made with Organic Soy

In addition, we offer 11 Worthington® products that are made without eggs.

We are currently exploring the use of cage-free eggs in our products and we are also looking at making more of our Morningstar Farms products egg free.  We recognize that this is a sensitive issue and we are committed to actively exploring how we can use fewer or no caged eggs. We appreciate the information you provided to us. Thank you, again, for your interest in our products."

Looks like the exact same letter I received and posted earlier this month.


Oops, I either I didn't see that or I forgot about it.  :-[  Oh, well.  At least, now we're reminded which kinds are vegan and OK!
