MIAMI (AP) - Burger King says it will begin buying eggs and pork from suppliers that do not keep their animals in cages or crates.

In letters earlier this month to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the fast-food chain says its new supply guidelines call for two percent of its eggs and ten percent of its pork to come from animals not kept in tight confinement.

In the letters, given to The Associated Press by PETA, Burger King's product safety manager Steve Weiffenbach also promises to double both percentages by the end of the year.

PETA spokesman Matt Prescott says the move “will send a ripple effect through the fast food industry.”
