People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) wants to know the number of cage-free eggs that the McDonald’s uses in the United States, the amount of crate-free pig meat that the company uses, and whether or not the company gives preference to chicken suppliers that use controlled-atmosphere killing.

McDonald’s is the world’s largest fast-food restaurant chain, serving nearly 54 million customers daily.


A representative of PETA owns 79 shares of McDonald’s stock and said he would present a statement at the company’s annual meeting.
