Ryan Gosling, the sexiest man alive, has penned an open letter to US warehouse store Costco, asking them to stop stocking caged eggs.
The open letter, which was addressed to Costco’s chief executive Craig Jelinek was published by the Humane Society. The letter was in response to the footage posted by the Human Society that showed extreme mistreatment of chickens by Costco’s major suppliers.
Warning this video is graphic:
The investigation revealed live hens locked in small cages with dead and decomposing chickens, rotting and fly-covered broken eggs on the facility’s floor, and birds with injuries caused by cage wires.
“It is appalling that Costco has been selling these eggs with deceptive labelling on cartons featuring graphics of birds living out in a green pasture,” Gosling wrote.
“You’re already eliminating cages for veal calves and pigs – don’t you feel that chickens also deserve the same mercy?
“So many corporations are meeting public demand for more humane products and transparency in the food chain. I sincerely hope that Costco will set plans now to go completely cage-free for its eggs.”
Costco has not yet replied to Gosling’s and the Humane Society.
