    Dear Decision-Makers,

    I just learned about the cruelties inherent in veal production by watching a video of one of your suppliers.

    I am horrified to see how baby calves raised for the veal sold at your stores are chained by their necks in tiny, filthy stalls too small for them to even turn around, walk, or engage in other basic natural behaviors.

    Please make the compassionate and socially responsible choice to immediately enact a policy prohibiting the sale of all veal products in your stores.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  • Attention Ohio Residents – If you live in Ohio, please contact the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board and urge them to honor the common-sense agreement reached in June by leaders of Ohio's farm community, humane organizations, and Governor Ted Strickland that would, among other things, phase out the cruel confinement of calves in veal crates. Contact the Board at:
