Le Cordon Bleu to use only cage-free eggs

As part of the growing sustainability movement, Le Cordon Bleu Schools in North America is switching to only using cage-free eggs at its 17 campuses nationwide, according to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

"The Humane Society of the United States applauds Le Cordon Bleu for its switch to organic cage-free eggs," said Matthew Prescott, corporate outreach director for The HSUS' factory farming campaign, in a statement. "Le Cordon Bleu has demonstrated that it takes social responsibility seriously and should be commended for improving the lives of animals in its supply chain."
