Everyone, all aboard the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile!

The pork retailer has joined the likes of McDonald's, Wendy's and other food suppliers promising to end their use of gestation crates.

Gestation crates, or tiny metal cells that immobilize and mistreat pregnant sows, are quickly becoming more and more intolerable.

Oscar Mayer has announced that they will phase out gestation crates, with a end date set for 2022.

Sydney Lindner, the Associate Director of Oscar Mayer Corporate Affairs, states the following:

At Oscar Mayer, we believe quality meat begins with quality animal care. We are committed to finding better ways to keep animals healthy and in a safe environment while treating them with respect.

Oscar Mayer is owned by Kraft, the world's second largest food company.

We're not sure about being Oscar Mayer wieners, but this is a great step to ending gestation crates for good!
