Costco's very cool move

Costco, the 3rd largest retailer in the U.S., recently used their significant and substantial power, to help curb horrific meat farming industry practices.

Last August, the animal-rights group ~ Mercy for Animals, released an undercover expose that was filmed at Buckeye Veal Farm in Apple Creek, Ohio. The film revealed horrifying industry practices such as chaining baby calves by their necks in filthy stalls that were so small the calves were unable to move.

Costco consequently banned its suppliers from practicing such neglect. They implemented a new policy whereby any suppliers wishing to be granted contracts with Costco can not tether calves, they must use stalls large enough to allow animals to move around and lay down, and they must have two calves per stall to ensure some social interaction.  The new animal-welfare policy also mandates that calves must be inspected at least twice a day, fed nutritious food and fresh water, and given veterinary care.  (What about literally 'ripping' them from their mothers-part of the ordeal??? See the video below for details.)

Costco explained that the newly instituted standards better align with company guidelines of treating all animals humanely.

Hats off to Costco for using their strength and influence in such a positive way!

Next time you pass one of their suggestion boxes ~ let them know if you appreciate their extremely cool move and thank them!
