February 19, 2014 - Celebrity Chef Christine Cushing today announced her partnership with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to encourage consumers to "Choose Cage-Free."
The Food Network Canada star, cookbook author and entrepreneur also released a video to encourage consumers to buy eggs from hens that are raised in cage-free housing. In a press release distributed by the WPSA, Cushing says that cage-free is a "clear and easy choice." She also says cage-free is more wholesome, although provides no data to back up this claim.
The WSPA is hopeful that Cushing's "passion for this cause will help convince everyone that cage-free is the right choice," says Josey Kitson, WSPA Canada executive director.
