2 Famous Actors Rip Costco For A Dark Practice They’re Keeping Secret

Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling are some of Hollywood’s most famous actors.

These good looking men have are two of the biggest heart throbs in the world, and as each gets more and more famous they command more attention.

Which is good news for the animals they’re trying to save.

It was only a few months ago that Ryan Gosling wrote an open letter to the CEO of Costco to see if they would change how they treat the chickens they raise for eggs and meat.

While Costco maintained the animals were treated ethically and humanely Gosling said that wasn’t true in the least.

Here’s a video Gosling posted.

In his letter Gosling wrote:

I am writing today about the recent undercover investigation conducted by my friends at The Humane Society of the United States at a Costco egg supplier. Video footage revealed abhorrent cruelty including rows upon rows of birds confined in filth-laden cages with the mummified corpses of their cage-mates—eating, sleeping, defecating, and laying eggs on top of dead birds—and hens’ wings, legs, and necks trapped in the corroded wires of their battery cages.”

“Furthermore, it is appalling that Costco has been selling these eggs with deceptive labeling on cartons featuring graphics of birds living out in a green pasture,” he wrote. “You’re already eliminating cages for veal calves and pigs – don’t you feel that chickens also deserve the same mercy?”

Shortly after Gosling’s letter went public there as a huge cry from his fans for Costco to do something about their dreadful practice.

But it’s been slow going.

So Brad Pitt joined the chorus of dissatisfied consumers who want to consume eggs from animals that are treated ethically and humanely.

Just last week Pitt posted a letter requesting Costco do something to fix this problem.

Yahoo News writes:

In Pitt’s letter to Costco’s CEO Craig Jelinek, he wrote, “As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings.”

“In these cruel cages, the animals’ muscles and bones atrophy from years of immobilization. That’s why the cages are illegal in most of Europe, and why California banned the cages by an overwhelming vote years ago,” the Fury star added. “In short, cramming hens into cages for their entire lives constitutes cruelty to animals, and animals deserve better. As you know, many major corporations, from Burger King to Unilever, are getting rid of cages—and Whole Foods hasn’t sold eggs from caged hens in years.”

The letter, however, ends with both a compliment and a plea.

“I admire Costco’s many positive social commitments,” Pitt noted. “You’ve shown great courage and integrity on a range of issues. Won’t you please extend that sensibility—and basic decency—to chickens? Please, will you set a reasonable timeframe to stop selling eggs from caged hens?”

When it comes to health, the eggs of cage free pasture raised chickens are much healthier than the eggs of chickens raised in cages and crates.

When chickens are able to eat their natural diet they are able to produce eggs that are higher in:

  • Heart health Omega-3 fats
  • Bone building Vitamin K-2
  • Weight loss inducing Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
  • Muscle buidling BCAAs (Branch Chained Amino Acids

And various other macro and micro nutrients.

For anyone who’s trying to live healthier and better these are the kinds of things that need to take place across America.
