BOCA® was first approached in January 2008 about its use of eggs, all of which come from hens confined inside barren wire battery cages. Battery-caged hens are typically provided with a meager 67 square inches of floor space per bird on which to spend their lives—that's less than the size of a sheet of notebook paper. These birds are so intensively confined, they're unable to spread their wings, dust-bathe, nest or even walk.
BOCA® has long been a leader in supplying delicious vegetarian foods to a growing market. Unfortunately, while many of its competitors have either reduced the amount of eggs they use or simply don't use any eggs at all, BOCA® hasn't yet moved on this important issue of animal cruelty.
Please contact BOCA® and politely request that the company remove eggs from its products and offer more vegan options. It's crucial that BOCA® hear from consumers like you:
1. Submit your comments online
2. Call the company at
Thank you for helping make a difference for egg-laying hens, and please forward this message widely!

On Friday the 13th, we went to see the remake of Friday the 13th. For its genre, the movie was pretty good. Of course, you may not feel I am a reliable source as I watched much of the movie through small slits in my fingers.
