HSUS to Address ConAgra Executives

At the annual shareholder meeting of ConAgra Foods (NYSE: CAG) on Friday, September 24th, a representative of The Humane Society of the United States was scheduled to ask the company to decrease animal cruelty in its supply chain by switching to cage-free eggs, as other food manufacturers have done.

The HSUS purchased stock in ConAgra as part of its efforts to move the Omaha-based company away from using eggs from hens in confined in battery cages.

In August, MacDonald's shareholders voted down a similar proposal.
