Tell McDonald’s: Consumers Are Flocking from Cruelty… and Toward Plant Protein!

chickens on factory farm

Photo taken from COK’s investigation of a Pilgrim supplier

Hundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies. If a human baby grew that quickly, she’d be 660 pounds at just two months of age!

Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.

As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Chains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.

Leave a comment below telling McDonald’s that this massive suffering won’t fly with consumers! Join us in asking the company to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.

JamesI tell you McDonald’s, if u will offer people vegan options, I’ll try you again.
As it is, you offer nothing but food that caters to red necks.
ChristineI have been eating plant based food for years now and have been able to keep my weight from fluctuating and have more energy. A fast food option would be wonderful.
NancyI live only blocks from McDonald's and have been a rigid vegetarian for 40 years. I would love to be able to purchase a "McVegan" burger in addition to my usual order of "Smoothies." This product would also save lives of countless animals and humans (with an excellent food source). I understand that McDonald's has experienced with different food choices in the past. I also understand that persons are resistant to transfer their eating habits to a vegetarian diet. Also, I was encouraged not to include personal messages with my comments. However, how can I communicate what I have found to be positive? I am 77 years old and in excellent health. Others can change, as I have. I look forward to "McVegan" burgers!
kimAs soon as you offer Vegan options I will become a customer. In the mean time I would not even buy a cup of coffee from McDonald's
TeresaVEGGIE BURGERS are delicious! ADD a slice of vegan cheese on a sesame seed bun and VOILA! McDonald's will start to have compassion for animals.
SandraSounds like a good idea...they do treat chickens cruelly as they grow..overcrowding,uncaring..etc etc
SandraHow about a veggie burger? You don't need cruelty with every meal.
FrankI've NEVER been in a McDonald's. Why would I support a junk food chain that exploits people and animals? Even if McDonald's did start to cater for vegans and provide vegan junk food, I'm not sure that I'd feel comfortable (a) eating junk food and (b) eating in a junk food "restaurant". I'd far rather eat in a vegan restaurant and wait for McDonald's and similar retail outlets to wither and die as the vegan revolution spreads across the world.
JulianIt's time offer a vegan burger McDonalds!
RuheeStop the cruelty!
LindaI used to love McDonald's, but I haven't been able to eat at one in years now that I've become vegan for ethical, environmental, and health reasons. Many of us would really appreciate it and you'd have a lot more customers if you'd add some vegan items to your menu. Thank you very much for considering this request.
GloriaMcDonald’s, why don’t you get out of the cruelty business? You are now associated with the barbaric treatment of the chickens in your supply chain, and it’s very unappetizing. Thousands of customers and potential customers are eagerly awaiting vegan burger offerings, so please get with the program!
InePlease stop the cruelty chickens are subjected to. They suffer from painful rapid growth, extreme crowding,and horrific living conditions. Please add a plant-based burger to your menu so I can start eating at McDonalds's.
LiviannaI spend money at fast food restaurants, but I am not a patron of McDonald's because of its delayed commitment to improving the welfare of the millions of chickens and other animals that are slaughtered for your products. I am writing to ask McDonald's to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.
Daria C.There is an increasing shift away from animal based proteins. It makes business sense, in addition to the ethical concerns, to position your company to be a leader of this movement.
Carrie DarlingI will no longer eat at McDonald's until you change your animal welfare policy and stop growing your chickens so fast and big that the chickens are in extreme pain. Also the conditions of overcrowding and filth must be changed!! I really wish McDonald's would add a veggie burger and other plant based foods to your menu for people that do not condone animal cruelty. Restaurant chains that take steps to eliminate the suffering of animals and offer plant based foods are being rewarded with new clients.
MargaretMeat is so eighteenth century. The future is vegan! Meat is murder, wasteful, unsustainable, and cruel.
IanPlant-based protein is the future.
KarenPlease offer veggie burgers! You’ll sell LOTS!
SusanI will never enter another McDonalds again until they serve vegan burgers AND can prove they care for their live stock with kindness and compassion!
BDear Sirs

We would like to see Veggie Burgers on your menu. Please heed our calls.
Thank you so much for your compassion.

Yours faithfully
B Ong, Family n Friends
Claireits important that McDonalds implements better welfare practices for the chickens in its supply chain and introduces more vegetarian and vegan foods. a vegan burger would be a good start.
MarionPeople!
Nicole RadcliffI would be one of your biggest customers if you created a good vegan entree option that wasn't cooked on the same area that animal products are. I'm around McDonald's all the time but all I'll ever buy is maybe a drink because nothing else is vegan. If there was a good vegan option I'd be tempted to eat there every day. Also pleaaase make it vegan without having to customize it. That would be amazing. For vegans obviously, but most importantly for animals, the environment, public health, human rights, and future generations.

DonnaI haven't been back to McDonald's for 20 years as you have never offered vegan plant-based foods. It would be helpful to know that such a leader in the fast food industry could grow the company toward a humane economy showing regard for animals & the environment. You have the power to do so much good & your business would have a new market to thrive in.
DianeThis is the 21st Century & fewer people are eating meat. Those who do are aware of food sources, and do not want to eat animals reared in cruelty.
CandacePlease be compassionate to animals and redirect a percentage of your business to focus on plant-based products! A veggie burger on your menu would be awesome!!! Thank you!!!
Catherine SnyderI go to one of your competitors because they have a veggie burger. I wouln't mind having another place to go. Maybe your veggie burger could be better???
DanielaThis would be such a nice thing to do
PattrinaPlease start preparing non-meat alternatives for those who wish less cruelty towards innocent animals.
TammyThis world needs to become more compassionate toward ALL the absolutely innocent creatures of this earth that don’t deserve such intolerable cruelties that we bestow upon them. I hope in my lifetime I see a change in the way animals are treated and cruelty becomes a horrible exception not the rule! Everyone needs to step back and seriously think about what really takes place in order to fill our dinner plates...we should all be totally ashamed of ourselves!! Going vegan is not that difficult and actually a much more healthy alternative!
CarolinePlant based foods are on the rise but McDonalds doesn’t have any. And while I don’t eat there often I was recently on the turnpike with McDonald’s as my only choice and there was nothing I could eat on the menu. I went to the convenience store and got something.
KathyPlease give us the option of a vegan burger.If the commercials aired with actual footage ,of the misery,and suffering of chickens,and COWS,restaurants would be nearly empty.As they say "If slaughter houses ,and factory farms had windows,we would not eat meat!The vegan movement I believe is on the move,and on the uprise.If fast food chains ,wanted to make money,they would get into this market.I am vegetarian ,and McDonald's has no options for me.They had a veggie burger years ago.It was so dry,and flavorless.No wonder they no longer offer them.
DianaI will only buy from a company that considers humane practices in its food supply. Also, I will only purchase sustainable alternatives to animal based protein.
DonnaSTOP 🛑 now
FrankNO CRUELTY!
EstherIs so sad and brutal to sacrifice an animal for a meal please don’t use meat
MarcI think a McVegan burger is a great idea for US and Canada, both to cater to consumer demand and alleviate the plight of suffering animals.
SusanThere is know place in this world for animal cruelty and murder. Plant based is the only way to end the misery and suffering of all the innocent animals. And plant based food tastes way better. Food should be grown NOT BORN. Food tastes way better if it hasn't died screaming in terror.
SarahI would love to eat at your places again, but you don't serve anything that I can eat as a vegetarian. I would love to see a veggie burger on the menu! Please consider this option along with almond milk for coffee.
Thank you for your consideration!
W L BoucherYou've undoubtedly noticed the growing number of fast-food chains offering vegetarian/vegan food. Now is the time for McDonald's to follow suit. This will not only benefit those of us who choose compassion over cruelty on our plates, but will also make great strides in eliminating the horrific treatment of animals in the food industry. Thank you!
MeganAs millions of consumers wake up to the miserable lives of birds in the chicken industry, who are bred to grow so unnaturally large so quickly that their legs often cripple under their morbidly obese bodies, and are crammed by the thousands in filthy, windowless sheds, Tyson and McDonald’s both have an opportunity to leap ahead into the plant-based revolution--instead of being left in the dust.

Spread your wings for these birds, and help make a Tyson veggie burger on McDonald’s menu a reality
AlyssaA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
robertWhat a huge statement it would make if McDonald's stepped up to the plate to provide options for those of us who refuse to eat chicken and meat because of the horror of factory farms and the absolute cruelty of slaughter houses. It would be a wonderful legacy for McDonald's. Robert Cobb
JohnChicken is food to be sure. But you can also be sure I won't eat at any place that tolerates cruel treatment of food animals, and that means McDonald's or any other place I am make aware of . Shame.
robertIt's overdue!
OwenPlease offer vegan options
DanielleI love McDonalds and wish you offered vegan alternatives. I wish your meat and eggs and dairy came from humane sources. I wish all your food packaging was compostable and that you went back to paperstraws.
PamelaNothing has to die in order for humans to live! I haven't eatten flesh from a poor animal for many years now. I think it is time to realize not everybody eats meat!
so please get on board here in the 21st Century and truly eat Healthy buy adding Veggie burgers and Vegan options for a lot of people who do not eat animals.Mistreating animals and using them as a product and not a living creature just for profit is beyond my understanding.
take a walk through a slaughter house from beginning to end. it is horrific what is done to Gods creatures just for humans to consume! plus there's nothing healthy about it. Lets go way back to the beginning. there wasn't MEAT in the Garden of Eden!

Pamela
DianeTo McDonald’s:
Please implement a basic welfare policy that excludes cruelty to animals. Cruel practices such as painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions are no longer ignored. I urge you to move forward by adding a plant-based burger to your menu
UrszulaPEOPLE ARE MORE AND MORE INTERESTED IN PLANT-BASED FOOD. TORTURE AND SADISM TOWARDS ANIMALS WILL MAKE YOU BANKRUPT ONE DAY IF YOU DON'T IMPLEMENT A BASIC WELFARE POLICY !! STOP THIS PARANOID AND PSYCHOPATHIC ANIMAL ABUSE!!! VEGAN IS FUTURE !!!
E.K.The program you have which includes crippling growth to chickens is not acceptable. It is inhumane to cause the chicks to grow so fast they can not walk and are in pain.The crowding and poor living conditions are not acceptable either. I believe having a plant-based burger on your menu would be advantageous. There are many who do not accept this treatment and will not consume meat. I would suggest you try it. Thank you for your time.
SoniaI would like to see veggie burgers on the menu. I avoid fast food chAins because they don't serve meals I can eat. Be the change!
BeverlyPlease offer a plant based sandwich. This would allow me and thousands of others to become consumers of McDonald’s again. Plant based foods are healthier for humans and better for the planet.

Thank you
cynthia1928 cherry lane change your menu and leave the animals to stop the suffering. go forward with the new menu and show others you dont have to torture the chickens. god is watching
DylanI would urge McDonald's to offer some vegan burgers, that way they can regain the patronage of myself and many others.
LaurenIf Carl's Jr. and White Castle can make it happen, it's time for McDonald's to lead with a hearty vegan option (beyond the apple pie).
FreyeAnimal cruelty is not compatible with ethical business and is creating a growing number of vegetarians and vegans.
I for one would not for a moment consider eating at a food outlet that treats animals cruelly.
JohnIt makes more sense to offer what consumers are willing to pay money for then not. Money is money. There is a lot of us now if that offer something for vegans they will buy it.
samuelI'm waiting for a good veggieburgerk, something with texture, not beans hanging out of the thing.
PeggyA & W have a great veggie burger - why not give your customers a choice in what they want to eat. Fewer cows die or suffer if you make a small change - please check it out & add it to your menu.
Thanks much,
cheers, Peggy
Kimberly KleinI go to Burger King because they already have a veggie burger. Please get one too so I can start coming to your place!
Marcii am writing to add my voice to the multitudes who want you to stop engaging in/enabling animal cruelty and start offering plant-based options. the future of food is plant-based, and it would not only be the right thing to do in a moral sense but a wise business decision to recognize that and get on the bandwagon.

Josephgive us a vegan berger give us the option.
SabineCruelty to animals, just for the sake of food, must stop. We owe every animal on the planet a carefree life. A vegan burger sounds good to me plus the less meat we eat, the better it is not only for the animals for also for our own health and the future of our planet.
DonnaA Veggie Burger on the menu would be wonderful!!!
WilliamMcDonald’s is an iconic brand that Represents our country and its core values of innovation and entrepreneurship. Please use your leverage to help advance the science, technology, and business of plant-based protein. Cruelty and environmental degradation are not what McDonald’s wants its legacy to be.
KirstenYep. Do it. Health professionals around the world are advising people to cut back on eating meat.
IrinaNow I can‘t eat in your restaurants. Waiting fir vegan burger added to the menu!
IrinaNow I can‘t eat in your restaurants. Waiting fir vegan burger added to the menu!
KarenI do not eat at McDonalds due to their exploitation of animals including pigs and chickens. I would however eat a veggie burger and it is a good move for TYSON and McDonalds.
AmyA vegan burger would be great but so would taking out the beef tallow in your French fries!
madelineHello
I was horrified to learn that a reputable company like McDonalds supported such unethical practices. By ignoring this issue you are condoning the ill treatment of farm animals. You are also supporting the violent behavior
of those involved in their care.
Please implement a policy that will help to legally enforce a more humane standard for the treatment
of farm animals.

mike leeyes pls
KimberlyIt would be a great option for the fast growing number of people who are becoming vegan or just vegetarians. I would purchase the veggie burher if it was an option. Right now i choose to go other places because there is so little that i can eat at mcdonald’’s. As ine of the oldest and largest franchise it would benefit the company to lead the way with offering vegan options.
MVegan/veggie options would be hugely appreciated!
TeresaVegan options would open a whole new customer base for McDonald's. I would love to be able to get fast food vegan breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!
TammiThough I am not vegan ,I would love the option to have alternative menu. Thanks for Kind consideration Health Wealth Prosperity 🙏 Happy Family!!! Value
chantal602 Brittania Crescent
Our family hasn't visited a MC Donalds in 5 years now. We can not support a company that treats animals the way your manufactures do. Animals are sentient beings and should be treated with compassion, empathy and respect. These factory farms are living nightmares for the animals that spend their short lives here. I can't imagine being an employee of one of these factories either? I don't know how they sleep at night. They must be desperate for a job. Anyone with the slightest bit of empathy will feel distressed treating animals this way.
Chantal
GregBe a leader!!
ElaineI would so appreciate a vegan burger as a choice on your menu. I am sure you will still also be selling meat, so please work on improving the horrific conditions for the chickens and all animals in your supply chain. More and more people are becoming aware of this!
JanePlease start providing alternatives for those who are vegan. It's really become a "thing" and you need to catch up to the times!
KatiThe future is plant based but in the mean time please show compassion and make sure all meat and poultry used in your burgers are sourced responsibly and meet the expectations of animal welfare in 2019. Thank you.
IanI agree with Glen. Put the Beyond Meat Burger on your menu
amyPlease end this mass suffering of sentient beings. Not only is this cruel and unnessasary its bad for the environment and the health of human beings. I totally encourage and support a vegan alternative and would happily be a customer of a healthy plant based option! Thank you!
EllenMcDonald's...don't get left behind. Join Carl's Jr. and Del Taco by offering plant based versions. I know you do it in other countries; America is ready to hop on that band wagon!!!
AnniePlease include veggie burgers. Many of us will not come in as we do not want to support or consume animal cruelty! Thank you!
matthewPlease offer vegan alternatives to your menu. It is definitely time to step up and start having compassion over cruelty so please start offering vegan alternatives to your menu.
WilliamLiking the idea of a tasty veggie/vegan burger !
VirginiaAs more and more consumers, such as myself, are trying to choose healthier and more humane foods, I strongly urge you to join other fast food outlets in offering veggie burgers on your menus. It's the right thing to do--for your customers and for your company.
ian merkleinI very much look forward to plant-based meat substitute that tastes good and satisfies.
Dave and RitaThe public is well aware of the horrific cruelty that chickens and other food animals endure at the greedy hands of man.Tyson has invested in Beyond Meat as they see meat sales declining! We urge you to put together a basic welfare policy that leaves out animal cruelty, which will exemplify you as a true leader in the food industry! A plant-based burger could be your first step toward that leadership role!!

With our sincere thanks!
Ann HillPeople want this!
AdrienneMany people are concerned about the welfare of factory-farmed chickens and choose instead to eat foods which are vegetarian or vegan. How great it would be if there were several vegetarian/vegan versions of burgers so that more people could enjoy tasty convenience foods. I'd also make a plea for the introduction of gluten-free foods.
LinneaIn this day and age not only should Tyson be able to raise a chicken
Humanly but also offer a plant based, no dairy, option to McDonalds!!
A veggie burger would be a fantastic option!!!
KelliePlease start offering veggie burgers and perhaps veggie breakfast sausages also. We would love it and eat there so much more. It would be such a cool addition to your menu. Please consider!
KateMy family and I would love to see veggies burgers and alternative protein options on your menu. We have been waiting for so many years. Now is the time. We would eat at McDonald's so much more if they offered a veggie burger. Please, please, please:)
paola CastanoPlease do the right thing and provide a basic welfare policy to address the extreme cruelty animals have to suffer when they are slaughtered. the moral thing to do is to try to make their suffering as minimal as possible. With social media and thanks to animal welfare organizations and the newer generations, people are paying attention on how we treat animals for our food consumption. Please be better.
SusanMassive animal suffering won’t fly with consumers! Please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu.
HelenI am currently a vegetarian and my ultimate goal is to go vegan. I am 100% against animal abuse, cruelty, and torture. This is why I am asking you to please expand your menu to include a veggie and vegan burger patty option available for your vegetarian and vegan consumers. Carl's Jr. has already taken this next step by offering the Beyond Meat Famous Star and it is really good! I have to say their Beyond Famous Star is the best plant-based burger that I have ever tasted and I was pleasantly surprised! 🙂 It is nice to be able to finally eat a really good burger again without all of the cruelty and pain and suffering of an innocent animal involved! Please seriously consider this option. It would be so great if you could offer a vegetarian and vegan version of the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder with cheese, since the Big Mac was my favorite burger at your restaurant. Thank you for your consideration.
Nancy WarnerBring myself and my family back to MacDonald's by introducing plant-based burgers to your menu. It's a crime the way chickens and other animals are treated in some slaughter houses and on some factory farms.
WhitneyAnyone who understands what these chickens are put through from the moment they are born, will stand against this horror!! I will not eat chicken because of what they have to endure and I am not alone!! Please consider compassion over pain. It will be a wonderful legacy!! People are becoming more aware of how their food is raised and slaughtered and are refusing to be a part of this travesty. Give us another option or say GOODBYE to us forever!! Thank you for letting me voice my opinion!!
ToniI currently do not frequent your establishment due to the fact that I am a vegetarian & my husband is not. We purchase meals at facities that offer vegetarian options. I think l,perhaps, you could increase your profits by including some vegetarian options for people like myself.
MichelePlease include vegan options on your menu. More than one would be great.
Marcia7 Bishop Avenue

KellieHaving options for everyone would be great!!! We don;t need to eat animals any longer.
HollyCome on! You can do and I can go back to your restaurants. Veggie burgers! Yum! No more animal cruelty to feed the cruel humans.

Thanks!!
shirley millsMore and more people are becoming aware of the cruelty involved in a lot of food production including chickens that are crammed in filthy sheds that grow too big for their poor legs to carry them.Disgraceful!
Please be more aware of the poor creatures in your supply chain.
You must move away from cruelty. Have more plant based food available.
Have vegan burgers available averywhere.
Sari McconnellI have not eaten at McDonald's in many years because of the lack of vege/vegan food. I know that there are 'options', but until McDonald's shows it cares enough to put out a proper vegan/vege burger, I stay away. But I would 100% support a new vege/vegan burger/menu item.
It is regrettable too that McDonalds' chicken supplier, Tyson, has a known history of horrific practices. McDonald's is in the perfect position to put pressure on Tyson to clean up its act, literally.
Carol HallPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.

pamelaWe all need to lean towards a plant based diet now to help the environment, stop animal cruelty and for human health. Other food outlets are changing over and are doing very well out of it. Not to mention names but a famous food outlet which is in the latest news, are making a bomb as demand of vegan food is outstripping supplies. McDonalds need to keep up or loose out. Simple as that.
DeeStop killing animals for food.
ValerieI would definitely buy veggie burgers.
Emil BradleyPlease, let's do it. More and more people have stopped eating meat and I do not therefore think that your profits will take a negative dive.

Enough killing.I

Thanks,

Emi
JudithAll animals have the right to be cared for and safe from harm. Just because they have no voice fosent give humans the roght to abuse them. If they could speak. Thed politley ask not to be abused or eaten, but, just to be.
SandyPlant based is the way to go. It is the only “burger” I will ever eat! Non dairy options like vegan cheese,as well as almond milk, is pretty standard in a lot of places. Please think of the word compassion. There is no humane way to end these poor animals lives, and the companies you are using are totally into pain and suffering. Go vegan!
SoniaPlease add vegan burger to your menu so we can go to your restaurant. Thank you !
DavidI look forward to McDonalds introducing a cruelty-free burger soon so that I can go back to the place that I used to love going to.
DiannaPlease add Vegan Alternatives to your Menu and Go Animal Cruelty Free. You would add Millions I’d Dollars to your bottom line by taking this step forward. Thank You !
deNO to meat. YES to vegan burger
Jim and lizAnimals are not ours to torture. I have not been to a McDonald’s in four years because of the abuses in their products.
AshleyMy family, friends, and everyone I know has boycotted McDonalds for years, even though it is literally the only fast food restaurant in town. My kids attend Colonial Beach Elementary and the school holds PTA meetings at the local McDonalds so that the children can play on the playground during the meetings. Not many people attend these meetings and I would like to attend but think better of it. I have three kids who have never eaten meat and I tell them we can't play on the very fun looking playground because McDonalds doesn't care about people like us. I'm actually offended to hear McDonalds offers vegetarian options in other (better????) countries but here in America we get offered the same old crap that has killed many Americans over the decades. Are the fries even hydrogenated in other countries or only here? McDonalds was originally created IN AMERICA!! It's an AMERICAN COMPANY!!! And yet they cater better food to any other country than their own country. If McDonalds doesn't start treating Americans the same as everyone else and offering some vegetarian and more nutritional meals to American families then I think they should leave my beloved town and start closing all over America. It's offensive to say "Oh Americans will eat anything!" Even if it shortens their lives, right? We deserve better. We deserve a true American company. Who doesn't want to expand their client base and make more money and gain some respect? Most other fast food places have already been offering healthier options for years. McDonalds is looking really behind the times and not listening to the American people. I hope one day they'll come to their senses, until then my family and friends are not setting food in their doors.

Animal abuse must NOT be tolerated.
jeanineyou need to add a plant-based burger to your menu!! it would be a huge seller.
the treatment of animals is horrific and it needs to stop.
ThienStop killings!
Lynette RidderI have not stepped foot in a McDonalds in over e decade. Why, because you don't offer any vegetarian or vegan options. Times are changing and more people are looking for plant based alternatives. If the folks at McDonalds are smart, they should add these types of items to their menu.

bobbieI would love to see the end of the meat and dairy industries cruelty to all animals in my lifetime. I know its unrealistic to hope the world sees the light and all go vegan but little steps like offering meat alternatives, and going all cage free, no factory farming, in major chains like McDonalds, is a positive step!
DeePlease continue to work towards ending cruelty to animals. Plant based burgers sounds wonderful and I would be a customer, again and so would thousands of more people. Thank you
PamalaPlease I mplement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu.
TitoMy family would readily buy a plant-based burger/nugget/patty, ditto for vegan options across your menu. We love fast food for convenience and fun factor but cannot support either cruelty to animals in the supply chain, or unchecked consumption of beef and dairy that exacerbates climate change.
nancyPenser aux animaux et à la planète . il faut arrêter toute cette surconsommation de " viande" toute ma famille viendrait au Mc Donald si il y avait des menus Vegan.MERCI
BarbaraTake the lead on this. You will be rewarded. Thanks

ViolaEverything Ms. Vicki said was what I was going to say. Adding to it, and it may be far fetched, but also not cooking the veggie patties and other vegan options in the same grease as the other foods. It would defeat the purpose of having a vegan burger. Also, the bun matters as well. Perhaps a sourdough bun or Italian bun.
KimI urge you to move away from inhumane protein sources to plant based sources. The suffering of innocent animals is not supportable.
GarySpread your wings for the birds, and help make a Tyson veggie burger on McDonald’s menu a reality
CarolynNot only do I support not cruelty to chickens, I happen to LOVE veggie burgers. I do not shop at McDonald's, even for my husband and son, who love meat, because there is not veggie burger. Get smart, start serving a healthy veggie burger.
IanPlease bring a vegan burger.

AgnesIts time for you to make some changes to your business the menues are getting boring you need some veggie opinions
More and more people are starting to eat better healthier and are very conserned about the animals therefore tgere are. Ore vegetarians and vegan out there so start changing your menues and stop supporting thus horrific animal abuse or i will never eat at your establishment again !!!!!!!!
MarisaÉ tempo de incluir um menu vegano e claro publicitá-lo para que todos possam usufruir. Aqui em portugal existe apenas 1hamburguer vegetariano e nem sequer está nos reclamos.
BRIAN LEEI have always wondered if McDonald's would offer a vegan or veggie burger. I would actually start eating again at McDonald's if that were the case. I believe there is enough financial incentive in McDonald's part to take this approach because there are enough of us who will be visiting McDonald's for vegan or veggie burgers.
LindaChains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, are catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also offer a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period. The US counterpart’s menu abounds with cruelly produced meat. We are hungry for a McVegan burger too!
AnnePlease stop the suffering of birds in your supply chain and stop lagging behind with animal welfare. Please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding and horrific living conditions. Become a true leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu. Please stop cruelty to chickens.

Thank you
BrianYes absolutely please, a veggie burger would not only help save countless animals but would also be a new revenue stream. It’s a very lucrative market and you would be first to the fast food market!
siegridGive peas a chance
MaddoxIn favor of plant based meals. Stop the cruelty!
siegridGive peas a chance
BarbaraI believe that this is the time and the age of stopping animal torture and cruelty by slaughter. Animals feel pain and fear and know what is going to happen to them. Imagine if it was happening to us. There are vegan ways of providing our food and now they can even grow meat in laboratories. We have to finally show compassion for these innocent creatures.
BrittonA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
LynneVeggie burgers - please!
IngridPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions and to become a true food leader by adding a plant based burger to your menu. Thank you.
NancyAs a vegan, I am the one who chooses the restaurants where my family dines. I encourage you to offer a vegan burger so my family and I can come back to your restaurant.
CharlesPlease work to stop the evil done in killing and then butchering our fellow creators.
KaraBoth vegan burgers and vegan chicken patties would be so great to have as an offering. Vegenaise (vegan mayo) would be even better! And also - please stop using beef fat in the fryer! McDonalds fries are the best ever, but I will no longer eat them (and haven't for a long time) because of the beef fat.

Thank you for your consideration.
John MI would love the option of a meatless burger especially when there are so many great ones out there. I never go to McDonalds since I am a vegetarian and think its an easy thing they can do to offer options for people who do not eat meat!
AnneI would encourage you to expand your menu to include the veggie burger and less chicken & beef products. This is good for people, animals and the planet.
TarusMcVegan burger, 100% winning idea. Go for it guys
JuanI would like to urge Tyson and MacDonald’s among other current chicken suppliers to employ more humane treatment of these animals in our food supply. Ideally, I’d like to see a vegan alternative developed and introduced on a wider scale. I’d go back to MacDonald’s again, if a non-meat alternative were available. Thank you.
ANN M MaglinteThank you for starting to make a change in how the chickens are raise,d, and offering a meat alternative. That is why I eat at Burger King, they have had a veggie burger sandwich for years with a great bun and fresh lettuce. You should check it out .
FrancesI have not purchased any good from McDonalds in 3 decades! It is good to hear that you are considering implementing a welfare policy that addresses the extremely inhumane treatment of chickens in your supply chain, and adding a plant-based burger to your menu. That will get me back to your restaurant as a paying customer, and there are millions like me.

Thanks for your willingness to change.
PatPlease offer a veggie burger. America needs to change their eating habits and you can influence our choices by offering vegan choices. Please save the animals and help save the earth.
SandyShow an educated, informed and compassionate decision to listen to the public and end needless suffering now. We would love a vegan option and would definitely support any move towards vegetarian/vegan options on your menu.
A&W has a meatless choice and it was really good!
DeanBe part of thr solution
Not the problem
NataliaPlease add vegan choices to your menus. But do not stop there for unless you act to stop the horrific abuse and conditions of brutal suffering in the factory farms and slaughterhouses which supply your meat no one will want to go to your stores anyway. Many other large chains are adopting humane principles. As the inventors of fast food and the pioneer of the big fast food chains you ought to be setting an example of how even fast food can be humane food! Thanks for your attention to this vitally important matter!
AnneBe a leader not a abuser. Spend your money on making McDonald’s better not worst . Some people love animals more then they love humans ,You can change there minds by making McDonald’s a better place to eat.
Dean636 Skyview Ranch Grove ne
MelanieMore and more people are converting to vegetarianism or veganism, especially in the youth demographic. It's time for McDonald's to expand their offerings and have some meat and cheese alternatives. A&W in Canada was sold out of their initial beyond meat burger offering for a couple of months because demand was so high
KennyI really don't eat meat so a Veggie Burger would get my business.
Karen TippingYour callous indifference to the sentient voiceless makes me sick !
I've been plant based/vegan for 25 years I WOULD NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM YOUSELVES KNOWING THAT YOURE JUST JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON, NOT TO MENTION THE HORRIFIC CRUELTY AND MISERY YOU HAVE INFLICTED ON ANIMALS.

SO FUCK YOU'S I HOPE YOU GO BANKRUPT !
Lisa mAnyone company that supports Animal Cruelty has blood on their hands.
I hope you all get a soul and do the right thing, otherwise I hope you get everything you deserve.
ChristineGoing Vegan would be awesome for the consumer, as well for all the chickens that are being slaughter, and abused. Don't forget the vegan cheese too. It's made by Almond milk
Pepper Jack cheese
You make a vegan burger w/ vegan cheese, and a wheat bun, you got a new customers
Hernan Ramirezswitch to plant protein at once.....at home we are no longer consuming meat rather plant proteins.....tks Ramirez family
TanyaI am very upset that while other chains are moving away from factory farming, McDonald's continues to show little compassion towards animal suffering.
I am writing today to ask you to please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions. The world is changing and you have a chance to be at the forefront. Please take this opportunity to do what is best for animals and the health of humanity by introducing more vegetarian and vegan choices. Specifically welcome would be the introduction of plant-based burgers on your menu, including as part of your happy meal offerings.
Thank you for your consideration.
SophiaPlease do all and more to help the defenseless and helpless. We are better humans and can work towards plant based diets which is win for ALL!
MichaelPlease make a veggie burger like how they have them in the UK. It’s the only way I’d start eating at McDonald’s again
EwaI am against brutality and cruelty to chickens. More and more people turn to vegan diet like me.
These chains like McDonald's should adopt the new policy and offers vegan burgers and other vegan meals.
FrancisYes to veggie burgers. If animal compassion doesn't suit you then corporate profits will as veggie burgers will sell!!!!!!!!
Neil1950 Demaray Drive #16
DawnEver heard of compassion???
PatriciaPlease offer a plant based items to your menu!! There are so many delicious meatless alternatives out there now. It's time to end the cruelty!! Thank you.
MelissaAdd a plant-based burger to your menu nationwide.
daniellePlant-based everything!!
AmandaA vegan option added to your menu would be appreciated greatly! As someone who NEVER steps foot in your business, I would start! Me & so many others would finally be able to enjoy an experience at your business with our friends/family who do eat there. The world is changing and there is a huge population of vegetarians, vegans, and individuals with food allergies who would benefit from this addition. Many fast food chains (like Carl’s Jr.) have seen great success in adding something like this to their menu! Thank you!
DavidPlease provide a vegan burger and stop using chicken fat in your fries and stop using some weird genetically altered potatoes
AgnesI can’t believe that such a progressive company doesn’t have a veggie option. I mean you tried the pizza and the McRib burger, but no McVeggie patty? Disappointing.
veniKilling animals for humans is not right. They are just like dogs, cats and humans. So, please add delicious cruelty free vegan burgers to your menu.
WilliamPlease offer a vegan burger in Michigan made with 100% organic ingredients.
JustineThis massive suffering won’t fly with customers!
KyleI'd eat at McDonald's often if there were a vegan burger available. A vegan breakfast sandwich would be even better
DanielleAdding vegan options to McDonald's menus is a huge step forward not only for health and animal welfare, but for the environment as well. This is a fantastic breakthrough! Plus, McDonalds will appeal to a larger demographic Keep it up. Hopefully this spreads worldwide.
NathalieI would buy a vegan burger. Please make them available.
KathleenA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
ChantelleVegan burger should come to Australia
CaseyPlease consider adding vegan options to the menu. Veganism is simply non-violence in action.
MarkAs a vegan family of 3 living in Denver Colorado, whenever visit McDonalds as there are no vegan options. That would change if you added some. Thanks.
LauraI, along with the majority of my friends and family, will no longer support McDonald’s until vegan sandwich and vegan fry options are available. It is an easy decision to support other fast food competitors who already provide these basic items.
GregoryPlease add vegan options to your menu!
RyanI always prefer eating at Burger King when given the option because of their BK Veggie. It's mind-boggling in this day and age that McDonald's doesn't want to compete for one of the fastest growing market trends by offering plant based alternatives. Seriously, get with the times Ronald.
LaraPlease add a vegan burger, and vegan fries, to your menus nationwide!
HarrietVegan burger in Uk please
AndresIt’s 2019, do it! Why wait? The people have spoken, support a healthier diet, environment and save some animals!
IsaacI haven't spent a dime at McDonald's in more years than I can count because there Is nothing - not even fries! - for a vegan to eat there. Adding a vegan burger would bring me and millions of other plant-based eaters back to spend at McDonald's. While you're at it, how about making the fries in the US vegan-friendly as they are in the UK and many other McDonald's locations across the world?
Dana#BeKindToAnimals
KarlaThanks for offering a vegan burger in Chicago. Please put one on the menu world-wide!
RobertaIt is time for McDonald’s to step up and lead other food industry powerhouses into lessening the impact on animals and our environment.
StacieAs many Americans embrace healthy eating with animal rights in mind, the culinary trend continues to move towards healthier low-fat, vegan, and vegetarian cuisine. McDonald's lags FAR behind basic animal welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions. Adding delicious meatless plant-based burgers and sandwich options to your menu not only exemplifies that McDonald's recognizes the need to end hormone induced rapid growth, confinement and extreme crowding, and disgusting and horrific living conditions.

Become a true food leader by adding plant-based options to your menu and STOP SUPPORTING ANIMAL CRUELTY.
JaniceI would love for my granddaughter to have a vegan option so that we could go to McDonald’s with her and her friends!
VirginiaMcDonald's would open the door to new customers while at the same time affect positive change to our environment!
LillianaMeat is cruel. Millions are going vegan just this year. It's time to offer new vegan friendly options! I used to be a customer who went almost every day, until I realized the cruelty behind animal products. More and more people are realizing this. I can't even have any coffee with creamer of any kind in your restaurants. Even your french fries, a normally non-animal product, has animal products in it!! Open your eyes
PatriciaPlease bring a vegan burger and more vegan options to McDonald’s!
AnaPortugal only has a vegetarian one, a vegan one would be amazing❤️
NicoleMcDonald's,

Please make the vegan burger (McAloo Tikki) permanent! And please make it nationwide! I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and would love to try the vegan burger ASAP.

Thanks!
Nicole
JohnPlease make vegan burgers available in your resturaunts. And whole grain buns would be nice too.
CameronI went to McDonalds regularly before I chose to stop eating animal-sourced foods in order to benefit my health, the environment, and animals. I would love to start going to McDonalds again once it starts offering plant-based foods and ingredients.
TaraI truly hope vegan options will be added to your menu for consumers. Thank you for your consideration.
DenisePlease offer vegan options in all your restaurants!
CaraPlease add a vegan sandwich to your menu nationwide.
MistyI love a cruelty free choice to eat at McDonald's.
DeborahWe want a vegab burger at McDonald's
ToddCome on!!!! Its about time your shareholders saw some roi!
Lead us to a competitively priced vegan burger And let us broke veg heads do the rest.

Love ya regardless!
DIANEHundreds of millions of chickens are raised, and, killed, for the "McDonald’s" menu every year! These sensitive, intelligent, birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors! They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies! If a human baby grew that quickly, she would be 660 pounds at just two months of age!

Although "McDonald’s" has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain! Meanwhile, dozens of "McDonald’s" competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms, and, the crippling effects of rapid growth hormones!

As "McDonald’s" lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers, like us, are flocking away from this cruelty–and, toward kinder, plant-based protein! Chains like "White Castle", "TGI Friday's", "BurgerFi", and, "Tropical Smoothie" are already catering to the massive, growing, market of compassionate, merciful, eaters by offering vegan burgers, and, sandwiches! "McDonald’s Finland" and "Sweden" also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but, their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger, and, abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat! American consumers are hungry for a "McVegan" burger too! It is time for "McDonald’s US" to step up as a true food leader, and, dish out a vegan burger!

Our family is telling McDonald’s that this massive suffering will not fly with consumers! We are asking your company to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful, rapid growth, extreme crowding, and, horrific living conditions–and, to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu!

Diane
DAPHNEThe future is Vega. Get with the program. Even Tyson is a share owner in beyond meats. Coke's best producing ad "the real thing" appealed to youth. This is where MCD needs to go. It's is an obvious financial choice that MCD should promote healthy and cruelty free. Personally my feelings are u are a megacap and couldn't care less about the trillions of chickens u confine and torture and murder everyday. One day a future generation will look back at disgust and horror of the way we treat animals . It was a waste of time to write this, you could not care less
SusanPlease offer your vegan alternatives everywhere and do not allow them to share grills and other equipment or oils with your cruelty products. Vegan is the way of the future and that is such a good thing because vegan means respect and love for all life!!! McDonald's can be ahead of the curve if you're smart enough to see what's happening. Thanks for going vegan for a better world!!!
ChelseaI would love McDonald's to have a plant-based option! I live a very fast-paced, busy life and often find myself at fast food joints, but Taco Bell is the only competitor for plant-based options. Please give Taco Bell some competition, and the animals a break!
KathyDear McDonalds:

Please give us vegan options. I would return to your restaurant if you do!
AndreaPlease offer vegan alternatives! You’ll keep your customers alive longer so it’s win win!
JimCan't wait for McDonalds to offer a vegetarian burger in the Washington, DC area. I spend over $1000 per year in your stores in Virginia and Maryland, but I getting frustrated with the lack of vegetarian options and often tempted to just skip the trip to McDonalds.

Please know how much a veggie burger would be appreciated by this loyal customer.
VannaTo whom it may concern,

PLEASE, adopt and enforce a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions and please add a plant-based burger to restaurants nationwide.

Thanks
Frances E FernandezHey can I get a vegan burger in my neck of the woods? PLEEEESE!
Kathryn1113 W Webster Ave# 2
Not just fake meat. Do more vegan entries.
FrancescaThe number of vegans - potential customers - around the world is increasing. Please bring vegan burgers - with vegan cheese- to the San Francisco area - and all of California - right away.
MernbishNeed vegan burgers all over US. 50 states.
VirginiaI am in Australia & would like to see the option spread to here.
Pat CoppesI purchase and consume store bought vegan burgers and chicken patties. Would love to give the burger at McDonald's a try in Iowa!
REGINAPLEASE EXPAND NATIONWIDE !!
MANY OF US HAVE LEFT MCDONALDS BUT WILL RETURN IF YOU HAVE VEGAN OPTIONS!
MeredithI haven’t eaten McD’s in years but I’d go back for this.
saraplease offer the vegan burger nationwide, along with other vegan options. eating dead animal carcasses is sooooo last year! be the leader in eliminating animal cruelty and protecting our environment!
ZachVegan burger option in LA please! If you are doing it in Chicago , do it here — and it’ll sell!!!
BeccaYes, please.
MelodyPlease add a vegan burger option!
JanMcDonalds, please give us a vegan burger Nationwide!

Thanks!
CarrieThe earth needs McDonalds to purchase fewer products taken from animals, so I hope that McDonald's starts to heavily market and widely make available its plant-based burger.
Debra L. MerskinAfter 25 years of NOT going to McDonald's I would consider doing so if this option were available. Thank you!
JenniferPlease consider adding a vegan burger to your menu....As I am sure you are aware, veganism is only becoming more and more of a way of eating. Changing with the times is the best way to go!
QueridoI would happily rejoin the ranks of McDonald's customers if a tasty vegan burger were offered near me, and if you implemented a policy to keep cruelty out of your supply chain! I miss eating at Mickey D's but won't support the truly cruel conditions imposed by your suppliers. Please give me a reason--two reasons actually!--to come back.
MelissaPlease put more plant-based options on your menu!

McDonald's please work on removing as many animal products from your offerings as possible and please start serving the vegan burger nationwide. thank you!
TaylorA vegan burger would be an awesome addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is absolutely NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
EmilyPlease serve vegan burgers and vegan options. McDonalds can be a leader.
RamonaFor those who have been trying to cut out meat, both for ethical reasons and because it is healthier, it would be fantastic if McDonald's would offer some vegan choices . Please roll out these alternatives nationwide!!! You would be benefiting both animals and the environment, and gaining a whole new genre of consumers for your product.
JanetPlease consider an alternative for the many people becoming aware of the story behind all our food choices.The vegan burger will be greatly appreciated and show a progressive vision for your company.
Betty AnnPlease add a vegan menu.
TeresaWe need vegan options for breakfast, lunch and dinner all across the USA!!!!
FernandoGreat initiative for McDonalds vegan burger..
Please make that initiative nationwide...including Puerto Rico.
KathleenIt's time to get on board and listen to the thousands who are vegetarian or vegan. The animals would be happy too!
Kelly GriggsPlease, please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menus nationwide.
JEANMARIEPlease add a Vegan burger at all locations! It's time! Even better? Add a Vegan burger and make your fries Vegan too! Or add a Vegan fry too!

Yes!!! Vegans love Mickey D's too!
RuthPlease add a vegan burger to your menu. Then I can once again be a McDonald's customer.
Mary AnnAs a longtime supporter of animal rights, including the right to live free from exploitation and the awful suffering of factory farms, I would definitely buy a vegan burger at McDonald's. I have already tried one that our local grocery chain sold, and it was very good! Please expand your sales of the new vegan burger nationwide.
CassiePlease join everyone else with Vegan options so we all can enjoy McDonald's again.
PeterCan you please offer a vegan burger nationwide? TY!
MarilynAnxiously waiting for your vegan burger Nationwide.
NicolettePlease include a vegan burger and fries for those of us who do not/cannot eat there any longer. Would make a big difference not only for me and other people. But mostly for the animals. Have a heart .
KaraI stopped eating at McDonalds several years ago when I became vegan. I choose to not even eat your french fries (which are heavenly) because beef fat is used in the fryer! Please add some vegan options for those of us who have made a commitment to animal welfare. While vegans typically eat rather healthy overall, we like to enjoy a "treat" every now and then, too.

introduced to your locations in Chicago. What a great idea.
As more and more people are going vegan
it would be great if you expanded this nationwide.
Thank you!!
Chris
StaceyPlease include a vegan burger & more vegan options on your menus nationwide
ElenaPlease bring vegan burger on Long Island ny
ROSALIEadd plant based burger to your menu
SamanthaGet these in Canada too!
Linda SzurleyFirst step to becoming humane, good, but offer this burger everywhere, not just
in Chicago!!!
EricPLEASE bring vegan options to Cincinnati and nationwide! Thank you!
MandyPlease add a vegan burger there are vegans increasing on a daily basis millions of us. Please provide a welfare policy to ensure animals are free from rapid growth and it's cruelty free from overcrowding and ensure a good standard and quality of life. I do take my grandchildren here and want to continue to do so
Thank you
MarieI have been waiting for a vegan burger for so long. I always buy it in Sweden, and can't believe you don't have it here. Until I have a vegan burger option in the US, I won't be your customer. Please speed it up, so we have it nationwide! We need plant based and cruelty free options!

Thanks!
BruceIf McDonalds offered a vegan option I would return to their stores again.
PatrickPlease add a vegan burger to your menu! This would make eating on the road so much easier for me. If you could make your French fries vegan as well, that would be so appreciated.
Kamal S.I haven't been to a McDonald's in a very long time. But I'd go back to try a vegan burger.
TeresaPlease provide vegan burgers in your chain restaurants nationwide. Right now, there is nothing at McDonald's I can eat.

Thank you.
GregoryMcDonalds! Time to grow up and evolve-- I will buy 10 vegan burgers weekly for myself and additional 20 for my friends. Also make your fries vegan, what is wrong with you?
KimWith an absolutely love to have the vegan Burger come to the Denver metro area!
KristinI have avoided McDonald's for years but would definitely try any vegan options they would offer!
KaylaA McVegan burger worldwide would be a great start, including a wheat-free version.
BerylAs a dedicated vegan I was happy to discover the ‘McVegan is standard faire in Sweden! My friends and I had them several times. They were quite good. Bring them to the entire USA!
ChristinaWhen I was 18 years old, I wrote to McDonald's and asked them to please make a cruelty-free burger. They wrote me back and very condescendingly told me there wasn't any demand for a vegetarian burger. Well, ya know what? I've been vegan now for several years, and I only go to 100% vegan restaurants and only buy 100% vegan groceries and nutritional supplements. McDonald's completely lost me as a customer a long time ago, but for people living in crappy cities that don't have vegan restaurants, corporate chains should evolve and give vegans or potential vegans a cruelty-free option. If McDonald's offered a McVegan in its U.S. locations, I just might give it a try. Until then, I'll just keep spending my money at 100% vegan restaurants. There are so many of them now.
JuliaI am soooooo excited to see you have a vegan burger in Chicago. Please please please make this nationwide!!!! I would love to be able to go to McDonalds again but there really is nothing I can eat on your menu that would be a meal.
VictoriaPlease add vegan options to your menu in all restaurants across the US, such as vegan burgers, cheese, milk, sausage, etc. That would accommodate and increase business from customers who care about animals, the environment, and healthy living. We need to stop being cruel to animals and to take care of our planet.
Thank you.
CharletteSo many fast-food chains and restaurants are offering readily-available plant-based options on their menus, it's time to speed up a vegan Mcdonalds burger, especially as Veganism becomes much more mainstream this year. Not only would this be a big step forward for plant-based eaters but also for you! There is almost nothing I can have from your menu except for a soy coffee or fries, and nothing that remotely resembles a full meal, and I know that so many people, and animals would benefit from this change.
Thank you!
KathieWould love a vegan burger option. At last you have made the move. Please, please open this up for all McDonald’s nationwide. We would love it down here in Florida.
ChristinePlease make your vegan burger nationwide- California likes veggie burgers, too!
TomMake a Vegan burger with everything in the burger plant base. Vegan mayo/Vegan cheese ECT. A complete vegan veggie burger 🍔

MargeWould buy vegan burgers in my McDonalds. Definitely
RobertHello --

I ate at McDonald's frequently, for much of my life, but stopped going there about 15 years ago, when I switched to a healthy, plant-based diet. I can no longer stomach the thought of consuming food that requires an animal to suffer to satisfy my taste buds. What's more, a plant-based diet is much healthier, and I value my health. I have now learned that McDonald's has introduced a vegan burger. That is such a smart move! I will absolutely try it, if it is made available locally. (I live in RI.) I am quite sure that if McDonald's adds cruelty-free options to its menu, consumers will gravitate toward them. I certainly will. Thank you!
CarolynIf you served a vegan burger, I would eat at McDonalds again. I stopped coming to your restaurant after I found nothing I could eat after I decided to stop eating meat. I won't even purchase a soda anymore.... that would change if a vegan option was served.
BonnieMcDonald’s, Please follow the progressive, compassionate path that White Castle, TGI Friday’s, and your Finland and Sweden stores have taken by offering vegan burger and sandwich options. I used to be a regular McDonald’s customer, though have not been for several years since becoming a vegetarian moving into veganism. When I became aware of the heinous treatment suffered by the millions of animals who serve as your and other companies’ food source, I no longer wanted to eat at McDonald’s and other fast food providers. Please implement a basic and humane welfare policy that addresses and ends painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living and slaughter conditions. These actions will show McDonald’s as a member of the growing number of organizations that are true leaders in the food industry and as a model for other companies and the general public. Thank you.
Helene BankPlease add plant based, vegan alternatives to your menu. The market for cruelty free and environmentally sustainable foods -- including 'fast food' -- is growing around the world. There are great options for vegan cheese, sausage and hamburgers, as well as plant based butter, milk and egg substitutes. There are even plant based 'fish' fillets!

Furthermore, please do the right thing and follow other fast food chains by instituting a basic animal welfare policy for your supply chain.

Thank you,

Helene Bank
TeresaPlease bring this to MN! Thank you!
MaricaPlease offer a range of vegan options for those families like us that are vegan and cannot eat non plant based foods.
Also the future is leading towards non meat based, and non cruel eating patterns. Why not hop on board and think about future profits in plant based options.

Thanks.
elizabethMillions of vegans in the USA want McDonalds to be our favorite fast food store too. Thanks.
RobinLove the veggie burger and I get it at Burger King, why don't you give them some competition and I'll eat at your place for a change.. my money is good! Thanks for keeping up with the times.
CatherineI currently don't eat at McDonald's but I would if you have a vegan burger. Please offer this option nationwide.

Thanks,

Cat
Gwendolyn DPlease include a vegan burger on your nationwide menu.
Martini would buy vegan food from mcd's would be nice if the fries were vegan and the mayo
DonPlease give us a vegetarian and vegan burger option like Carl's Jr and other chains have.
SusanPlease stop supporting animal cruelty and move to plant-based options on your menus. Applaud your decision to try a vegan burguin Chicago area, but encourage you to make it available at all your restaurants nationwide.
LuAnnI stopped eating at McDonald's years ago because of animal cruelty. Please offer vegan options.
NancyMorningstar and Boca hae completely vegan burgers out and they taste just like original burgers. In fact, I prefer them instead of real meat burgers! Why would I eat animals and everything they have eaten? Turkey is an animal and I would not eat turkey meat. I only eat vegetable products. This is why my family and I have stopped eating at McDonalds! We are animal lovers and don't believe you have to kill animals to survive! Animals are some of the most beautiful beings left on this earth!
JessicaPlease add a vegan burger to your menu! Vegan is the hottest new trend. Its better for the animals, health and the planet. Its also immensely popular!
GlennThe Beyond Meat burger is better than ground beef — in ALL respects. I’m a carnivore but will never buy one of your or your competitors’ beef-based burgers again. Burger Fi and TGI Friday’s have beaten you to the market which is sad and regrettable given your position in the market.
susanI live in Los Angeles and the need for vegan options at McDonald's is extreme. I NEVER have eaten there due to the food being so cruelty based, but could see changing if they would offer a plant based sandwich
LAURAVegan! Vegan! Vegan!
SaraI refuse to support institutional cruelty such as your poultry! I urge you to implement fundamental animal welfare policies to address the awful conditions animals in your supply chain are suffering under.

Won’t eat at McDonalds again until you treat animals more humanely.
YvetteGo vegan!!!
HusseinVegan is the future. Please start providing more vegan meals in the U.S. nationwide.
EdwardI quit going to McDonald's YEARS ago. But if you add a vegan burger and vegan fries to your menu, I promise, I will return.

Lisa-MariePlease do the right thing.
MarianneLet's go, become a true leader!
JoyceVegans should have options across the country!
KimAdding vegan options nationwide is only going to help your bottom line. You are pretty behind in this area right now and have some catching up to do.
BeckyA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! Don't forget vegan mayo and buns for the burger! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. Do the business a favor and PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
JudyPlease stop the cruelty to chickens! I have completely stopped going to McDonald's because you refuse to enforce your suppliers to higher welfare standards. I have also been successfuland getting others to stop eating there. One of the best things McDonald's can do is to bring the vegan burger to all of their stores to help stop the cycle of cruelty. This will in turn provide a healthier, more humane option that all people can eat.

FrancinePlease have the vegan burger all over the US and the world! It sounds great and promotes animal and human welfare. Please also address the massive sources of suffering of chickens in your supply chain. Possibly use a non-chicken substitute that is equally good tasting?
KarenI basically live in a vegan food “desert” when it comes to fast food options. Please offer the McVegan burger nationwide!
KristiA vegan burger should be a staple in any restaurant that serves burgers! By not having a vegan burger, McDonald’s is alienating a HUGE potential customer base! We want this vegan burger 🙂
BearSince your McVegan burger was so successful in Finland and Sweden, why don't you offer it in the U.S. too? You'll gain millions of new customers who currently refuse to go to any McDonald's at all.

Dave and RitaThis is great news! Please plan to spread this burger nationwide! We will be customers when you do!
Many thanks!
KimberlyPlease add a plant-based (vegan) burger and other vegan items to your menu. I'm not a current customer of McDonald's but would consider it if you had such options. Thank you.
BartonI went vegan 25 years ago, I quit eating at McDonald's 25 years ago. Start selling vegan burgers and I will eat at your restaurant again. I am not alone.
AnthonyNow is the time to be compassionate to animals the continuous suffering has to stop. It is wrong that animals are treated the way they are and that those who eat meat keep getting sick from the conditions that these animals are raised in plus the number ours hormones and antibiotics they are pumped with to increase size and speed up production. We need more plant based alternatives out there. Please you are the most none chain fast food across the whole world you can make these non meat alternatives available to people everywhere. Please start providing these options all over.
NormaSince there isn’t a vegetarian option at Mc Donald’s we do not stop there. My husband eats meat but will not go there since then he would have to take me to another place like Burger King or Taco Bell so Zi have something to eat. So until there is a vegetarian option we bypass.
Carol1199 Boundary Blvd
NikiWould love to have a vegan burger option AND vegan fries!
LenoraPlease add your vegan burger to your menu nationwide! This is the year of the Vegan-- there are thousands of people who want more plant-based options. Plant-based food is a win for our health, for the animals and for the environment!
Martin TrippMcDonald's really needs to accelerate progress in putting a vegan burger in its stores. As much as I miss their fries, I won't be going back to a restaurant until they serve a vegan burger.
DonnaAs a vegan, I just ate at Carl's Jr for the first time in over a decade because it now sells Beyond Burgers. Please offer your vegan burger worldwide so I can go to a McDonald's again!
JoyPlease offer vegan alternatives for those who care about animal cruelty. You’d get a lot more customers if you would cater to vegans. We need a vegan burger, plant milk for coffees, vegan fries, etc. You are behind the times. Eating plant based is needed to save our planet. Animal cruelty isn’t acceptable anymore. Thank you.
SatiroMcDonald’s has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. There is increasing market demand for nutritional vegan options, preventing cruelty, promoting health and protecting the environment.
SueMore and more people asking for veggie burgers. Please offer your vegan burger nationwide.
GregoryIt’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
JodyIt is nice to see a vegan finally as an option!
Patricia20 Morgan Street
SANDYIT'S TIME YOU STEP UP AND BE A TRUE LEADER AND DISH OUT A VEGAN BURGER NATIONWIDE AND NOT JUST IN CHICAGO! MASSIVE SUFFERING WILL NOT FLY WITH CONSUMERS. WE ARE SAVVY AND SMART AND YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE CHANGES IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS! PLEASE ADD MOR PLANT BASED FOODS TO YOUR MENU IN PLACE OF MEAT BURGERS AND CHICKEN.
ShellyIt’s way past time to add a vegan burger and more vegan options to your menu. Too many animals are suffering and it is absolutely horrible for our planet!!! Be the change!!!
KimberlyIt's time, beyond time, for vegan options at McDonald's. Whichever fast food chain gets going with vegan options, including healthy vegan options, will be rewarded with a greater customer base. Please implement vegan choices in all your restaurants. Thank you.
RayleenI'm excited to learn that you're offering a vegan burger in Chicago. Please offer the vegan burger Nationwide.
LaceyPlease introduce a vegan burger nationwide.
GlennChains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
Kevin PettyIt is time Mcdonald's adopt a real and prompt chicken welfare policy like many other chains have. McDonald's should also offer a vegan burger nationwide.
MichelePlease add vegan burgers to your menu. Burger King has had their "veggie burger" for years.
RuthI live in Bremerton Washington. I am a vegetarian and would love to see more vegetarian/vegan options at fast food restaurants. My local Subway has a veggie pattie sub. How about joining the trend.
Ana-PaulaPlease add vegan cheese to your menu as well
GaryVegan burgers, please.
BarbaraPlease give us vegetarian and vegan options!!!!!
MarkIf McDonalds added a vegan burger to their menus nationwide, or even in Los Angeles, I would eat there for the first time since 1991.
ThomasIt’s time for a vegan burger!
SusanVegan food is popular for several reasons. Offer a tasty plant-based burger and you should do well by doing good.
Wyman WhippleWe need more plant protein. We need vegan burgers.
TerriI became a vegan when I learned of the unconscionable cruelty to animals in the industry. I didn't want to be a part of it. You drive people away as they learn of how horrific the cruelty is. You are your own worst enemy.
ShellyIt would be nice to have a vegan burger option in the US like they do in Europe and other countries. I guess maybe McDonald's does not quite cater to vegetarians and vegans as much as places like Burger King just yet.
LisaPlease implement a policy to insure chickens benefit from welfare standards that address their basic needs. Also, please offer vegan alternatives--many of us would take advantage veggie burgers sold at your stores.
sarathe cruelty must stop! please offer vegan options!
CherylI have not been a customer at McDonald's for several years but would return if vegan burgers were an option.
PennyPlease stop animal cruelty by your vicious slaughter habits.

Also please provide plant protein options in your menu choices.
EmilyTreat the animals humanely and pay the farmers better
AmandaPlease bring vegetarian options to McDonald’s in USA!!!!
LindseyPlease bring vegan options to Ontario. The amount of vegans in the GTA is mind-blowing. A&W rolled out the beyond burger and it was sold out in 2 weeks across the board! Please help feed our fast food loving vegan community!!
dinaPlease transition to vegan items for consumers. Vegan food and beverages are better for the animals, our health, food safety, and the environment. Please make vegan options available to everyone!
NikkiMore vegan options please! Nationwide!
MeganI’ve been a vegetarian for 9 years. The only thing I can eat at McDonalds is a salad with no meat. I noticed that you are offering vegan options in the UK. It would be amazing to have those options here in the US. The world is changing. People are more aware of the conditions in factory farms and more people are choosing plant based diets. Hopefully McDonald’s can be on the forefront and begin to offer vegan options. I’d also love for you to offer almond or soy milk in your McCafe locations because I can’t even get a coffee now.
JenI avoid fast food chains because they have no vegan meal options. When McDonald’s adds vegan choices to your menu in all locations including smaller cities like mine in the Midwest, then and only then would I purchase any food there.
ROSALIEOur animals, our health, and our environment need a plant based diet. offer some vegan burgers.
MartinaA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat, not even your french fries. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!
ElizabethPlease offer a vegan burger! My family loves to go to McDonalds, and I am not willing to eat anything on the menu because there are no vegan options. I would love to be able to have a vegan burger with fries while on the road!
LeviIt would be great to see McDonald’s take the lead among large fast food restaurants to offer valid vegan options
SatishA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk!

Thank you and God bless!
Joanne Petersonplease put vegan burg on menus all around the world!!! there's money to be made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LauriePlease offer plant-based options. Veg burger. Soy milk for your coffee drinks! Thank you for your consideration. Many of us refuse to eat food based on cruelty to animals.
KatherinePlease--if you truly care--join other restaurants in offering vegan (plant-based) entrees at every McDonald's! Don't be the only fast food place not joining the move to plant-based eating!
Elainevegan burger nationwide !
CharleneIt's time for McDonald's to join the rest of the world and offer a vegan burger!! I know we would go to McDonald's more frequently if there was something for me to eat besides the southwest salad without chicken and cheese!!!

RussellI would eat at McDonald's if you had a vegan burger.
sarathe cruelty that your company exudes towards animals is alarming. stop the cruelty now! we want vegan options! get with the times, people do not want their food to suffer needlessly!
Michelle67 Enterprise St.
PennyIt would be great to be offered vegan burgers! Food is so much better when you know that no cruelty to animals is involved.
NoelleI urge McDonald's to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu as competitors like White Castle, have done.
StaceyThe future is plant based. Join the billion dollar industry and provide plant based options for families.
MireilleAs a 25 year vegan, I have not been to any of your restaurants for years. If you add a vegan burger to your menu I will visit again. Please expand this nationwide. Atlanta and surrounding area will "eat this up". Thanks for being smart and compassionate.
SwatiPls get the vegan burger into your stores. And would you Pls also remove the beef from your fries while you're at it?
Thank you for your time!
EricWould love for you to introduce a whole range of vegan products to your menu. Especially just a plain old burger and fries. Thank you!!!
JimI want a ethical choice at mcdonalds! Bring this burger nationwide pleaaaaase
MargaretThanks for offering a vegan option in CA - I'm hoping you'll do this nationwide! And not a "veggie" burger like Burger King (that has eggs in it), a true vegan option. Hopefully I'll be buying from you again soon.

DebbieMcDonalds please give us a vegan burger nationwide!
JazmynMake vegan burger nation wide and make the frenchfries vegan too!
KarenI would love to see a vegan burger added to McDonald's menu! I've been vegan for a long time. It would be so convenient to be able to pick up lunch at McDonalds when on the run like 9thers do. Plant based food is the future. It's a good investment and the humane thing to do!
LaurenI have been vegan for almost 9 months and it’s changed my life. I feel amazing! A vegan burger at McDonald’s would be a great way to introduce more people to the possibility that they too could go vegan. I thought it would be impossible for me to go vegan but with the right transition foods (vegan burgers and restaurants that have offered vegan menu items) I was able to do it. Also, I used to eat Big Macs once a week but haven’t bought a single thing from McDonald’s in almost 9 months. A more inclusive menu might open Macdonald’s up to more revenue. Just a thought.
TannerWould like a vegan option at McDonald’s nationwide
StephanieGet with the times!!! You will have much more business if you offer actual food!
SummerWhere I live, vegetarian and vegan fast-food is virtually nonexistent. I'm tired of only being able to order basic salads!
adamGO VEGAN MCDONALDS
PatriciaYour actions to produce a vegan burger are way overdue McDonald's. At least you have shown some Evolution and for that I applaud you. As a vegan for years I will not be supporting you. I'm sure others new to the movement will.
WilliamThis is such a great idea. I had already heard of your great success with a vegan burger overseas, but bringing this stateside, so wonderful. Wendy's tried a few years ago and dropped the ball. It'd be great for you all to prove that they were wrong. This feels like McDonalds taking back their title as the standard setter of the fast food industry.
AmandaYes! Vegan burger in Nashville, TN and all over the country please!!!
LeighI live on the road and frequent fast food often...right now Taco Bell and Subway are the only places getting my money. McDonald's would benefit from expanding to New England (VT,NH,ME,MA,RI,CT)
ScottFrom the UK but would like to see that over here
NikkiNationwide vegan options please!
KimberlyI would love to see your vegan burger offered nationwide. We're on the west coast and something like this would sell very well in our area. Thank you.
SandyMe and my family haven’t eatin at McDonald since we became vegans and I really miss it because it’s affordable, open late and great for when on road trips but there is nothing for me to buy there so, introducing these vegan options would be really great and your gaining more customers
KatiePlease provide q vegan option for McDonalds
KateThe McAloo Tikki was the best part of living in London, and I am THRILLED that you're putting it on the menu in Chicago. Between poor treatment of animals and treatment of employees, I have been avoiding McDonald's for a long time. This burger is a step in the right direction, and I hope your humane treatment of animals and people continues to increase nationwide.
MariaI have been to White Castle twice in the past two weeks to eat their impossible burgers, and because of that haven't given McDonald's any service. If McDonald's gets a vegetarian burger, I will start eating there again instead! Thank you.
DanielleYou used to be my favorite fast food place. I'll spend a lot of money there if you just make a veggie patty!
MellyThank you, McDonalds, for making this effort for animals and the environment in Chicago. It means a lot!
CraigBurger King has had veggie burgers for years!
KristenPlease offer a vegan option! There are no meals available for those that choose a cruelty free diet
NathanPlease, more vegan fast food options! It's the future of food. 🙂

AliceEvery little step counts! Even if you eat less meat counts... If everyone ok. The planet would eat 50% less meat, just imagine how production would drop to 50% and what a huge difference would this make.... This is huge... I always wanted McDonald's to have vegan food. They have money to do research and make the best most delicious Vegan burgers that would erase the meat ones. Every step counts. I wish they would start selling it to Europe as well.. I think they would have a huge succes.
ChristinaA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk!

CainenDooooo it! Everyone else is, even KFC is trying it, be the bigger fast food chain and make a veggie burger!!
DaniellePlease bring McVegan to Texas! And a vegan sausage McMuffin for breakfast would be nice too.
KatiePlease offer vegan options. A vegan burger with vegan mayo and fries not cooked in animal fat would be awesome!
RileymarieHaving vegan alternatives would greatly expand your consumer base and allow people to make healthier and more ethical choices. Even individuals who do not identify as vegan or plant-based can desire healthier options !
JeffI used to love McDonalds as a non-vegan but I haven’t eaten there since going vegan 16 years ago. Please offer vegan burgers and/or vegan chick’n and I’ll be back! Thanks
AlyssaXxx
JamiePlease make the fries vegan, too!
PaulaAdding vegan options to your menu will welcome in a larger group of people.
MariahPLEASE BRING US A VEGGIE BURGER TO MCDONALDS. YOU ARE SO FAR BEHIND AND LOSE SO MUCH POTENTIAL BUSINESS!!!!! YOU ARE LOSING A BIG AND GROWING PORTION OF THE FOOD MARKET!

AND ALSO IF YOU MADE YOUR FRIES WITHOUT BEEF FAT YOU COULD GAIN A TON OF CUSTOMERS.
JuliaI am so appreciative of McDonalds offering the vegan burger. As a vegan in Cincinnati my friends and family would be so happy if they offered it here! Thank you!
XaviWhen I consumed animal products, I loved McDonalds the most. I had a fast-food addiction!
This would make my life so much easier; when someone suggests eating at McDonalds, I could actually tag along, get a vegan burger, and also encourage anyone who is interested in animal ethics or the environment to try them!
A vegan burger just seems like a win win win on all accounts, hopefully w/ the rising % of vegans, you'll give us an option for when we are on the road and need a quick meal.

MaydiaBring a vegan burger to Australia please!! Hungry Jacks have one already, why are Mcdonalds so far behind?!
JaceMcDonald’s, please keep up with the rest of your competition and offer one, if not more vegan options worldwide! Many vegans would be happy to return and enjoy McDonald’s if there were options for them, myself included. Please and thank you!
EmilieDo it!!
JessicaPlease bring vegan burgers to your establishments along with the vegan extras- cheeses, sauces, etc. Please also keep in mind the welfare of those you are slaughtering for money. It's the least you can do.
KimPlease add vegan and/or vegetarian burger options.
WendiOffer your vegan burger nationwide! Please, do better for the birds, the planet and me! This new chicken one looks great make it nationwide
TaylorNot everyone eats meat, please add a vegan burger to your menu.
MelanieSo happy to learn you are testing a vegan burger. Please bring it Kansas City! Vegans are a quickly growing population here. You are the only drive-through between my home, work, and child’s school. Right now, there is nothing for us to eat there, as even the fries aren’t vegan.
Please bring us vegan options; we’ll buy them!
RyanPlease add a Vegan Burger. It's so past time for you to catch up with the rest of the world!
DeborahDear McDonalds,
Our family has been Vegan for six years now! We would definitely love to see a Vegan Impossible Burger at all your locations Nationwide! Add vegan cheese, vegan mayo, and a vegan bun and we'll be buying lots of them! Just Egg has an amazingly delicious vegan egg product as well. Thank you for listening!
AnnaPlease take your vegan burger Nationwide!
It would be great for Vegan travelers!
LeeI would like to see this vegan option in nation wide. Burger King has a veggie burger but isn’t vegan. Please consider making your fries vegan too.
Beverlyneed more vegan fast food in BOSTON!!!!
ChrisGood luck
DeniseIf it tastes great why not have the full menu vegan ?!!
CherylPlease put vegan burgers on your menu nation wide. We want convenient options too! Vegan meat substitutes are the way of the future.
GregoryPlease add a vegan burger to your menu! The world is going vegan! Also you MUST implement a basic animal welfare policy immediately.
GwenPlease add more vegan options!
ChristopherWould love to see a vegan item up here in Seattle!
MatthewThere is literally nothing in your store I can eat. You would be gaining a MASSIVE amount of customers by adding vegan burger options to your standard menu, including vegan cheese!
SarahYou should make the vegan sandwich available all over the country. The last few years have proved that vegans aren’t going anywhere and the industry is growing at such a fast rate. Do you really want to loose more business to places like White Castle that offers vegan burgers ALL OVER.

Let the rest of us have the new sandwiches.
OliviaPlease add vegan options world wide!
WilliamHello!
My wife likes McDonald’s chicken McNuggets. I want to stop in with her, but there’s nothing for me to eat in your restaurant. Even your fries have meat on them!
I was thrilled to hear today, from Compassion Over Killing, that you have introduced a vegan burger at your Chicago location! Please share this exciting offering nation or world wide in your restaurants. I will immediately become a customer, and a very vocal, connected customer!

Thanks!
MalloryPlease start carrying this vegan option nationwide!! 🙂
CarolineAnything vegan would be a great start since it’s non existent now. I would definitely purchase this item and would be glad to see such a major chain going this direction.
TamaeraJust sick
JamesI CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS CORPORATE GIANT THAT PRO PORTS TO HAVE A SOCIETAL CONSCIOUS AND MORAL INVESTMENT IN ACTS OF KINDNESS AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT CAN CONTINUE TO DO BUSINESS KNOWINGLY SUBJECTING ANIMALS TO UNUSUAL AND CRUEL TREATMENT! THIS SHOWS WHAT SHAM VALUES MCDONALDS HAS AND PORTRAYS FOR PR PURPOSES!!

Golden Arches of Cruelty that will not see me at their butcher parlors
KerriAfter visiting McChickenCruelty.com, I was shocked to learn about the horrible treatment of chickens killed for McDonald’s menu items. The conditions they are forced to live in are deplorable. When will McDonald’s finally adopt a policy that ends this cruel treatment?
AnnaPlant based burger is future! And soya milk as option for coffe would be perfect(
JosephThere really is no other direction to take.
DonaldThis is just good business as competitors are moving in this direction.
MariePlease consider buying only from suppliers who treat their livestock humanely. Thanks
JessDisgusted with you, McDonalds. It's because of you that I went vegetarian and soon, vegan. The entire world is turning to plant foods (finally) and despite your sales dropping and the closure of so many of your stores, you refuse to do the sensible thing and move towards plant-based. McDonalds = Cruelty. Time for you to grow-up, lead the way and go vegan, don't you think?
BobbiPlease accommodate the growing population who don't eat animals. Update your menu with better options for vegetarians and vegans. Thanks for considering.
SandraMcDonald's should offer a vegan burger (soy free) American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
Barbara & VincentWe want and need vegan products on your menu's
JPlease offer vegetarian and vegan options
SuperGadgerI'm a Climate Scientist (retired) and tire of the pseudo-science continuously propagated by various government agencies, personnel, the media and businesses whose profit margins will gain from “Carbon Taxation”. In fact, C02 does not drive global warming, it never has and it never will.. Far more deleterious to the environment is the gas methane produced in vast quantities by cattle and other animals bred for meat production. As a ‘High Profile’ company that has eventually succumbed, (in part), to environmental pressures in regard to packaging, Macdonald’s now risk losing sales for as long as meatless products such as White Castles’ Sliders remain unavailable.
HeatherYou have still to address the cruelty and suffering of poultry/birds in your supple chain.
GustavoGo vegan, go green
HEATHERYour pathetic excuse for "food" will never be a part of my life again. Stop murdering animals and treating them like they are a commodity! I hope everyone wakes up to the truth.
Elisabeth Davis-KaramPlease offer non-meat options
AlyssaI refuse to eat at McDonald's until their policies change.
patiHi, could you be so nice as to indicate me whether the Animal Rights 2018 National Conference 2018 could be attended online, or if the talks would be filmed and be uploaded and posted on youtube, or will the video copies of the speakers be available to be purchased or downloaded, and what would the workshops be about?

SofiaStop animal cruelty! More variety in the menus.
MichelleStop animal cruelty
Natalie1913 Riverview Drive
MicheleFactory farming is detrimental for numerous reasons: cruelty, environmental destruction, disease to name a few. McDonalds lags behind its promise to promote a global commitment to source animals raised with improved welfare outcomes. Perhaps I would reconsider and patronize McDonalds if there were vegan options available and saw McDonalds become a true food leader by its practices of supporting animal welfare.
LynnGo animal free, stop the cruelness.
PatPlease add a vegan burger to your menu. Additionally, please source your chicken from ethical providers that address the horrific rapid growth of chickens and the crowded conditions they are often stuck in. This is not humane! Even though these animals are being raised for food does not mean they should be treated badly! If they give their lives for us they should be treated with the utmost respect and compassion!
CarolVegan options are the only way I will come into a McDonalds
TClean up your act!!
Bobplease consider compassion for chickens. Make their suffering as little as possible.

If Finland and Sweden can sell vegan burgers why can't the U.S.?
NicoleAs a vegan, I cannot eat anything at McDonald's. I would love to see a vegan menu. Please also implement cruelty-free policies into your facilities and suppliers. We can all do better - including McDonald's!
JaninePlease listen to your customers. Animal welfare is of great importance and you must not continue to turn a blind eye for profit!
JenniferGood Day,

I am reaching out today to lend my voice to those calling on McDonald's to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding and horrific living conditions of the hundreds of millions of chickens raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. Consumers are flocking to plant-based protein and while my true wish is for McDonald's to make that transition and serve vegan food and end the slaughter, until that day, please put basic welfare policies into place for these sensitive creatures.

Thank you for considering my feedback.

Respectfully,
Jennifer D'Angelo
MeaganPeople want healthy meat free options & not just on a trial basis. Also consumers want choices that do not come from cruelty. Almond milk, veggie chicken nuggets & patties would be awesome.
Meagan1057 Linda Way
HeatherThis needs to stop, abuse of chickens is uncalled for It is not right. No one deserves to be abused. Justice for animals. I love animals and don't want them hurt, tortured, or killed nor do they need to be used for selfish and ugly reasons.
KarinaHundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies. If a human baby grew that quickly, she’d be 660 pounds at just two months of age!
Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.
As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Chains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
KatherineAnimal friendly food is the future. Please stop serving animal products.
CatherineHello,
Please keep your promises. Your company has benefitted from public approval of its promise to shift to sourcing its supply of chicken from suppliers that are themselves committed to raising and slaughtering animals in a responsible and ethical manner. After failing to act on its commitments, we are now DEMANDING serious action in order to achieve this goal in the very near future.
NikiPlease add a vegan burger to your menu!
LaraPlease offer a vegan burger at your restaurants!
RichaPlease Stop animal killing, we dnt need animals as our food. Go for plant based options.
MarthaShame on you. How do you live with your selves? Stopped patronizing McD for this reason going many years and will not return until they become responsible.
RachaelTime to improve animal welfare and start promoting more plant based products. Healthier and cruelty free! Better for the planet! 🌏
AmyPlease add a plant-based burger to your menu -- as well as other vegan alternatives. Give vegans a reason to eat there!
Cheryl L LechtanskiMany food franchises are starting to offer plant based options to their customers. Why hasn't McDonald's done the same? More and more consumers are choosing cruelty free options. Why can't McDonald's do the same? Bring the McVegan or another plant based option to the United States. Thank you.
DawnIt is high time you as a company had some standards and morals. Stop contributing to animal abuse and human obesity. You can do better.... Much.
GinaCruelty will not fly with me.
KathilynNO McDonald's for me or my family until you stop the animal abuse and also bring in a plant based protein!!!!!

Hundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies.

As we would do for our children, so too shall we do for chickens- please ban chicken and offer vegan products!!!
CatherineSince becoming a vegetarian my husband and I no longer eat at McDonald's because they offer no vegetarian options. Many other fast food restaurants such as Taco Bell, Burger King and Subway all offer vegetarian options. McDonald's really needs to do better and move forward - you are losing customers who care about animals and the environment. Would love to see a vegan burger offered so McDonald's could once again be an option when having fast food.
OdalisPlease add a vegan burger.

GraceI URGE you to adopt significant animal welfare reforms and put an end to the great cruelty in factory farming, like overcrowding, debeaking, and no access to fresh air and sunlight. It is SO unhealthy for the animals AND for humans. Thank you.
jovitaI ask McDonald's to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions--and to add a vegan burger to its menu!
JoanneMillions of consumers want food that is in harmony with their personal ethics. It is your job not only to offer plant-based options, but to ensure that all animals raised as food for your products are humanely raised, with every opportunity to live a natural life free of confinement and suffering.
JeremyPlease commit to improving animal welfare standards, making your french fries vegan, and to selling a veggie burger in the U.S. Thank you.
BethWe haven't been to McD's for a while, reason being your menu needs an overhaul! The only thing we like is your salad minus the meat. Why don't you listen to the public and offer vegan friendly food? Stop your war on these innocent chickens!! UNACCEPTABLE.
EstherHave never tasted a hamburger in my life, produce a plant base burger, and I will be a Red Rover Red Rover and I will be right over. Be a leader, and many will follow.A word of mouth, will fill your pockets more.
JessicaI haven't eaten at McDonalds in years, since I've gone vegetarian. I would definitely return if there was a veggie/vegan burger offered.
BarbaraPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions--and to add a vegan burger to your menu! It is the right and compassionate action to take for the animals, for human health, and the health of the planet!
YesseniaHello,
Considering plant base food even if it's just a burger will not only bring great nutrition to the consumer but you will attract a new crowd of people that are willing to try it thus bringing more profits to your business. Please consider it not everyone eats meat for various reasons including religion so it just would be great if everyone could dine in everyone can have something to eat.
Good day to you.
ValerieAdd plant based options to your menu. Pls. consider the health impact of your customers & stop the cruelty of all animals in all your factory farm facilities. Now a days there are tons of alternatives to healthy eating that is cost effective & humane to both customers & animals & our environment.
CharityI don't know to McDonalds because of your history of buying cruelty products , you own this to consumer and these poor suffering animals to do the right thing .
NicholasPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.
NicoleAnimal abuse should be treated seriously. Only people without compassion would do this thing to another being.

Every countries/businesses in this world really need to start taking animal welfare seriously.
MaryI have NOT eaten at a McDonalds because I don't eat animals or fried, greasy foods.
Please offer a VEGAN option for those of us that care about the ENVIRONMENT AND ANIMALS

ALSO, IT WOULD BE AMAZING IF YOU PROVIDED ORGANIC VEGETARIAN OPTIONS--LIKE A SPICY BEAN BURGER OR SOMETHING ELSE TO BRING SOME OF US BACK TO YOUR ESTABLISHMENT. REMEMBER KINDNESS AND COMPASSION FOR ALL LIVING BEINGS PLEASE. KARMA
MaggieAnimal lives matter! Animals were not created to be tortured by people. Please offer vegan options on your menu and use more humane sources for your chicken!
Cathy WallachMcDonald's is behind many of its competitors and must step up and realize that animal welfare is important to its customers.
NanYour competitors have heard the public, aka your customers, and have changed their suppliers as well as adding products to meet the growing demand of humane food offerings such as vegan, non animal based food.
It is time for you to step up as well. Until you roll out a vegan/ non animal based food alternative menu here, we will not be purchasing anything from you anymore.

ardyth KromschroederEven chickens can feel pain!! This is animal abuse. As humans...we should be better than this and stop putting money ahead of ethics. Protect all animals.
LisaDear Sir or Madam:
I commend your global commitment to source chickens with improved welfare outcomes but it seems that there are some indescrepancies with the chickens raised in your supply chain. The chickens suffer an accelerated growth rate that causes them to collapse under their own weight and they are confined in congested sheds where they don't have enough room to engage in natural behaviors. I'm sure you see the marketing value of correcting these short-comings as well as the value of alleviating animal suffering.
Thank you for your time.

judyplant protein in any way would be amazing. Bring back a veggie burger fixed the same way as your hamburger!
Marcicease abetting the abuse of innocent creatures. start adopting a plant-based strategy. if you're not moral enough to do it for the right reasons, do it because this is what consumers want and it will benefit your almighty bottom line.
CarolIt's bad enough that the chickens live such short lives before they are killed, but you could at least see that they live in humane conditions with no overcrowding and are not kept in cruel wire cages. Also, any employee who abuses an animal must be fired immediately. Let the poor things go outside in good weather and enjoy grass and sunshine. Try to put yourself in their position and see how you would feel if you had to live in the awful conditions many chickens must endure.
BobbyIf McDonald's cares about their consumers as well as the Planet, you should offer vegan meat options!
Lou-EllenYes, the American way...have choices...for vegetarians also even if part time. Good for animal life and environment.

PaulettePlease make animal welfare a priority: end the painful rapid growth and consequent crippling of chickens, extreme and unnatural crowding, and lack of access to the outdoors and to sunshine. More and more people are unwilling to participate in cruelty to other living beings with their own right to live natural and peaceful lives. You have a major role to play and along with the above considerations would do a great service by offering a vegan burger on your menu.

TraceyDear McDonald's Management Team-

Please consider being more compassionate toward the birds and animals you are using in your products. Conditions for these sensitive, emotional animals could be dramatically improved and it's time to do so.

We are realistic that McDonald's is not going to go plant based overnight but could you at least start offering the option of a vegan burger? Not a vegetarian burger (which might contain eggs or milk) but a 100% plant based vegan burger.

As a committed vegan...I thank you!

Sincerely, Tracey Jackson Soucy

MaddoxMcDonald's needs to get with the times that are changing and update their menu to satisfy people who do not want cruelty to be a part of their diet. For years, McDonald's has made a continuous profit off of the misery of animals to feed the masses that are obsessed with animal consumption. Make the change and go with animal free food. McDonald's profits off of animal misery, but they have the opportunity to finally serve the public with dignity and respect!
EllieStop this cruelty!
Mary AnnPlease join your competitors in acknowledging and addressing animal welfare as your responsibility. Increased public awareness of the horrible conditions in which animals are raised for food is having an effect on our choices for suppliers of that food. If a company like McDonald's is lagging behind its competitors in ensuring humane conditions for chickens, pigs, and cattle that are raised for food, we will go to Burger King or Wendy's instead. Also, for those who choose to avoid animal sources of food altogether, please offer a vegan burger. I and my husband tried one at home recently and enjoyed it as much as a beef burger. You could be serving a growing segment of the fast food market by offering vegan food.
NancyPlease switch to plant based alternatives.
ReneePlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions.

Also add a plant-based burger to your menu. McDonald's Finland and Sweden already have a McVegan.

Thank you,
Renee

KevinMore vegan choices, as a company you do try- but not enough. Check out the unbelievable cruelty at your factories. No animal wants to die, show compassion and kindness .
KathyPlease offer vegan burgers in the USA. I would definitely frequent McD's if you offered it.
Thanks.
SandyPlease stop this massive suffering. Please start serving vegan burgers.
CaraHello,

I believe that profit over lives is probably not the best practice. I believe you will receive more customers if you do the right thing and put animal lives over profit.

Thank you!!
RayleenI'd love to see McDonald's honestly address the animal cruelty still found in their supplier's facilities. It is time for the human race to evolve, like we did in this country regarding slavery, and insist on the humane treatment of all animals.
I'd also like the opportunity to purchase cruelty free veggie burgers from McDonald's restaurants.
Another concern of mine, is regarding the non biodegradable straws currently in use at McDonald's restaurants. Please consider an Earth friendly alternative.
DinahVegan choices please
EricI will encourage everyone I know to boycott McDonald's until they change.
JeannieIf your company can't be humane and treat animals with compassion and give them a decent life, then you ought to quit what you serve. Have you considered what your life would be like in those conditions? Think about it for a minute or five. No one would be okay with it so why do you think animals don't deserve the same conditions? Grow up and be kind for heavens sake.

What you are making your money on is not only horrifically cruel to all sentient beings but you are one of the main causes of heart attacks, cancer and diabetes, medical facts now back this up! Please at least start by offering a vegan burger, not a veggie burger containing dairy and eggs, but pure vegan.. I would also like to request an area on the grill specifically set aside to cook these burgers so they don't become contaminated with flesh. Thank you for your consideration. Vegans are here and we are multiplying and NOT going away.
MikiI'm NOT loving it.
Jerri-BethChickens, cows, and pigs are sentient beings with feelings much like humans. Please be kind to them and the planet by adopting a fully plant-based menu.

Dana CraigMcDonald's should move forward towards a more humane plant based model. Thank you.
KatieYou've already shown kindness and improvement by implementing cage free eggs and the McVegan in some countries. Other restaurants know that veganism is the future. Please consider adding vegan options to your menu.
RoseannPlease catch up to reality! American consumers are eating more plant-based foods than ever and would welcome 100% vegan items on your menu.

For the items that are animal-based, please enact animal welfare policies like other fast food manufacturers. Animals are crowded together in filthy living conditions and forced to grow too large too quickly, leading to crippling ailments.
DaylePeople are waking up to the fact of how cruel meat is. The least you could do is provide human living conditions to those poor chickens. I won't be back for even a french fry or cup of coffee until McDonalds changes its ways. Same with all the other fast food places that sell misery.

At first it was a little hard to change, all I had to do was remind myself of what was going on. I frequent no establishments that do not have a policy of better conditions for animals. That is the first step: better conditions. Next step: Plant based.

Frank & Jean CarltonConsumers are becoming more aware of the unnecessary cruelty & abuse of animals involved in factory farms. Since you have failed to address the suffering of animals involved in your supply chain, perhaps you should follow the lead of McDonald's in Finland & Sweden & offer a McVegan burger in the U.S. Plant based protein is a healthier alternative & might just extend the lives of some of your customers. I remember a televised segment on McDonald's test kitchens that illustrated how much time & effort goes into developing new items for you menu. Surely, these folks can come up with a delicious alternative to your current fat saturated menu. By the way, you would impress those of us who are concerned by the pollution caused by the excessive use of plastic products, particularly straws by coming up with a straw that is more easily bio-degradable. Thanks.
BlakeAmerican consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.

Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.

As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Chains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
This massive suffering won’t fly with consumers!I ask the company to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu.

I will actively tell my network of family and friends to also avoid McDonald's until this issue is seriously addressed. I will also actively support those restaurants that have committed to requiring basic welfare changes from their chicken suppliers such as reducing the severe crowding on factory farms and dealing with the crippling effects of rapid growth. I will also avoid McDonald's until you seriously commit to providing plant-based/vegan alternatives in all of your restaurants throughout the US and the world. It is time for McDonald's to step up and be a leader in the fast food industry again. Lead the way with vegan options, environmentally responsible business practices, and basic animal welfare standards.

We will NOT purchase food that has Suffering and Cruelty attached to it any longer. Factory Farms need to become a thing of the past.

Please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.
Carlos RamirezPlease adopt a humane way of treating your chickens and all animals. 'I SEE HUMANS BUT I DON'T SEE HUMANITY."
MarijaStop cruelty and start peace
HollyIt's time for a change!!
LesleePlease institute a humane basic welfare policy for chickens!
DeannaPlease start making vegan friendly options available. There is no reason that fries should not be vegetarian friendly, and there are great vegan burger and "chick'n" options available.
KristiAs an owner of five rescue birds by chance and now vegan because of their amazing companionship they provide, please allow for more vegan options. Ever since rescuing them attending McDonald’s is only to feed the seagulls and grab an occasional Diet Coke for myself. I’d love to pick up something for myself but unfortunately there is barely even a d cent salad option. Please McDonald’s use your convenience to save the lives of many innocent animals and prolog the life of mankind by offering us easy and convenient healthy vegan options! You have the power to make the world a better place!!
Helene BankPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions for farmed animals. Also, adding a vegan burger to your menu would be very welcome!
Thank you.
HannahPlease add a vegan burger to the menu! We animal lovers are hungry for it! Also, please stop the horrid, cruel process of getting chicken meat. There are more humane ways of doing it. Thank you for your time.

TheresaThe horrific conditions inflicted on chickens is sickening and cruel. The knowledge of chickens living without the space to even move and legs breaking under their own weight is now becoming known throughout the world. Chickens that are injured or sick are left to die slowly and painfully, often trampled by other chickens simply trying to survive in the cramped, tiny area provided. How can a company who prides itself on demonstrating kindness and compassion to families with the Ronald McDonald House be so blind to suffering? Animals feel pain, sadness, fear, and depression; how can you turn your back on those who are so defenseless and depend on you to treat them with decency? Has money become the only thing that matters while hundreds of thousands of chickens live in pain, fear, and filth? Have you truly lost your soul? Please implement policies that reflect your true commitment to eliminating the cruel world of factory farming and returning to animals living as they were born to live.

kasunSimply, you know what to do 😏
RichardPlease enact a animal welfare committee at McDonalds.
chrisi never eat at mcdonald's, don't know why anyone does
DavidMcDonald's, the smart business move is to start carrying vegan burgers before Burger King does. Whoever does it first gets my business for the rest of my life.
LaVaughnPLEASE, END THE CRUELTY IN YOUR SUPPLY CHAINS!
BeverlyUntil McDonalds significantly improves the lives of our farm animals, I will take my family somewhere else. We have better choices.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue,
Beverly Smith (in Louisiana)
EllenPeople want change and compassion.
GeralynTimes are changing and the market should recognize consumer demands. Please implement animal welfare protocols. More and more people are aware of and strongly disagree with the horrible conditions in "factory farming".
Please make improvements in the conditions of chickens raised for slaughter.

Please also consider adding plant based alternatives that are just as delicious!

Thank you
KimPlease consider non meat options- I haven’t eaten animals for almost 7 years and never will again
ChristinePlease offer vegan options- chickens, cattle, and hogs suffer terribly in factory farms- from the moment of their birth, through debeaking, dehorning, and tail docking (without any painkillers), to long truck rides with no food or water, to the final terrifying hours crammed into the slaughterhouse, where they will be stunned unconscious, have their throats slit, and hopefully be dead before they are skinned and eviscerated.
ClaudiaEnough is enough.
judyEventually you will see that cruelty will not drive sales and revenue....it will happen.
ChrisTo McDonalds,
Please join Finland and Sweden in serving customers the much desired McVegan Burger!!! The success there can easily be replicated in the U.S. Times have changed and consumers have wised up to the devestating effects of cholesterol, trans fat, animal fat and the carcinogens found in meat. The plant based market has exploded in the last couple of years and will certainly disrupt companies that have yet to jump on the band wagon. The new generation is intelligent and educated, they are aware of the devestating effects the meat and dairy industry plays on the environment and global warming, this generation demands healthy, clean plant based products that do not contribute to animal cruelty, suffering and death. Look at the success of Veggie Grill or By Chloe, they have a strong and steady following throughout the U.S., every year they consistently open new restaurants with tremendous success and make plant based eaters very happy! It’s time for McDonalds to let go of the notion that you can only be profitable from the exploitation and consumption of animals. It is no longer true. Please give the world the McVegan Burger and drop animal products from your menu! Thank you. Chris
Carolineyou would increase your sales and your public image if you were to take the simple step of obtaining cruelty free animal products
mariotime for a great vegie burger !!
TylerInhumane
PeterVegan burger taste can range from fair to good. Why not try to make the best vegan burger out there?

DeborahMcDonald's, you can afford to do better. Please demand only the highest standards from your corpse-suppliers, and please offer more vegan choices for those of us who don't like to participate in cruelty.

Thank you.
TerriMcDonald's, we as people who care about the welfare of chickens will not tolerate the cruelty you serve to your chickens, I will no longer be a customer of yours and will be spreading the word to others about the cruelty you inflict on the chickens and this means you will be losing even more business.
JohnAs McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty, and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Chains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period, but the US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too and it’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.

This massive suffering will not fly with consumers. I am contacting McDonalds to request that your company please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions, and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.

LaceyPlease implement an animal welfare policy immediately. Animals should not be subjected to inhumane living conditions including intense confinement, overcrowding, and painful rapid growth.
JaredHelp the chickens!
AnnI hope that McDonald's will get away from using factory farmed animals. Factory farms do not treat animals humanely. It's about time that McDonald's made this change. In addition, it would be nice if McDonald's would start offering non-meat alternatives for those of us that don't eat meat.

Thank you.
DianePlease offer vegan options. Thank you!
RachelDear McDonalds, cruelty is NOT good enough! On behalf of the animals change your suppliers to ethical and humane farmers.
Terry FriedmanMcDonald's has touted its “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes," but fast growth continues to cripple birds in your supply chain.

Please join your competitors and add vegan options to your menu.

Thank you.
MarkAlso I want Burger King to go vegan burger, not vegetarian that included egg & milk, too, by using Beyond Meat!

Hundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies. If a human baby grew that quickly, she’d be 660 pounds at just two months of age!

Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.

As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein.

MelissaHundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year.

These curious, sensitive, and intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, unable to engage in many of their natural behaviors.

Trapped in a life on factory farms, they are also painfully trapped in their own morbidly obese bodies. Bred to grow so unnaturally large and fast, their legs often collapse under their weight.

Dozens of McDonald's competitors have committed to requiring basic welfare changes from their suppliers -- changes to reduce extreme crowding and the crippling effects of rapid growth -- but McDonald's has yet to address these massive sources of suffering for birds in its supply chain.

Millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty--and toward kinder plant-based protein, and chains like White Castle are serving this growing market with plant-based patties.

In Finland and Sweden, McDonald's now offers a "McVegan burger," after a hugely successful test period.

Please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions--and to add a vegan burger to your menu!

LindaPlease add a plant based burger to your menu. I don't eat the blood, flesh, and guts of animals, which is really what you're eating with a regular burger--yuk--so I would appreciate the option of a healthy and delicious plant based burger. Many are scrumptious these days. Hope you'll give them a try with all the fixings! Be a leader and do what you can against animal cruelty. Stand for something GREAT. Thank you.
EdwardMcDonald's is increasingly falling behind the sentiments and purchasing habits of Americans, especially millennials, as it continues to cater to the unenlightened values and tastes of an older generation that is rapidly dying off because of its poor dietary and health choices. I call on McDonald's to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.

LourdesProtect the birds!
StephenMcDonald's, it is your responsibility to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions for animals. In reality you should implement an industry leading policy that acts in the best interests of animals. Moreover, you should add a vegan burger and other vegan selections to your menu. It's simply not cool to be cruel!
BruceOptions for non-cruelty produced products are really what a lot of people, including me are looking for.
Amanda TruebloodAs someone who is vegan for animal reasons, I have not been able to eat at McDonalds in over a decade, because you do not offer a single item on your menu without animal products! I am not anti-chain restaurants, and I am not vegan for health reasons. I visit Chipotle and Starbucks so often that most of the workers at the locations near my house recognize me. If McDonalds had vegan options, I would absolutely eat there, particularly because McDonalds is often open later than other restaurants. It is 2018, I do not understand why McDonalds refuses to add vegan items to their menu. Please improve your animal welfare standards and add vegan options to your menu. Thank you for your time.

MariaAs consumers we reject what MacDonald´s does to chicken on the twenty first century. You must rethink your backwardly policy. A way to stay tunned with us is offering more veggie dishes: We want less blood in ur plates! And no hen being tortured for eggs!

MelinaMcDonald’s - your “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes” is not fooling anyone. Demand that your suppliers make necessary changes in the way they raise their chickens. Rapid growth and overcrowding are cruel and inhumane practices and public interest in this issue is growing ever faster. Make the change or lose customers.

Add vegan items to your menu. More and more people are switching to a plant based diet and demanding sustainable options from restaurants. Expand your paying clientele by offering a plant based patty, vegan cheese and mayo, as well as vegan salad dressings. You are one of the top dogs of the industry. Lead by example.

Again, make the change or lose customers.
TinaPlease stop exploiting,torturing and murdering sentient beings just to make a profit.
LeslieCompassion is key. Please end the suffering of these beautiful sentient beings.
SusanThere should be plenty of support for a McVegan burger. Let's have one. Animals deserve a break today and every day.
CraigC'mon McDonald's. How many years do you have to be in business before you finally do the right thing? You're long overdue. So please change your cruel ways and DO SOMETHING significant to reduce the abominable abuse and suffering that you indirectly, but massively, foist upon innocent animals.
KimPlease make plant-based items for non-animal eaters.

PatPlease add a vegan burger to your menu. Additionally, please source your chicken from ethical providers that address the horrific rapid growth of chickens and the crowded conditions they are often stuck in. This is not humane! Even though these animals are being raised for food does not mean they should be treated badly! If they give their lives for us they should be treated with the utmost respect and compassion!
JillianIt’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger. Thanks for your time.
JeannePlease change your purchasing habits. If you do not you are only exacerbating the horrible treatment perpetrated on these defenseless animals. This isn't something you must do, you choose to stay with this plan of doing business and if you continue to do so, you will start losing business.

PatriciaI long ago stopped eating at McDonald's restaurants because I am trying to improve my health through my diet and McDonald's food does not fit into my philosophy of clean eating. I am very concerned, however, about the treatment of animals in the food supply chain and I absolutely abhore abuse and mistreatment of any animal. The treatment of farm animals in the factory farms is especially concerning to me. Please offer a vegan burger and I will go back to McDonald's.
garyMacdonalds are behind the times if they don't recognize the the wishes of potential customers.Animal welfare is becoming more and more important to large numbers of people.
ChantelleIt is time to step up and deliver vegan burgers. Implement a basic welfare policy that addressess painful rapid grpwth, extreme crowding and the horrific living conditions. Become a true food leader and add a plant based burger menu to your customers.
JillPlease offer vegan alternatives to one day be able to stop being one of the biggest cruelest animal killers and human health killers on the planet. Please stop selling your customers tortured animals.
SimoneI have seen, first hand, the suffering inflicted on birds by breeding them for rapid growth .
McDonald's, swap the cruelty for vegan foods!
MeritxellPlease provide alternatives to meat and dairy. The future is vegan get ahead of the other fast food chains.
michaelMcDonalds:

Unless you make a genuine commitment to the common decency of animal welfare your stockholders are herein put on notice. There are MORE human beings in America that are concerned with this issue than the number of hamburgers you boast to sell!

It will certainly be the beginning of the end. This is NOT asking for much, simply do the "right" thing. It will be better for all involved, not only the animals, but also your customers, stockholders and more importantly the conscience of America. And, in addition, you can be absolutely certain you will have the support you need, however how long it takes to transition, from your customers and non customers alike. Thank you

DianaStop the factory farms.
JamesPlease limit cruelty. Give vegan options.
JenniferPlease, implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions of millions and millions of chickens. You will become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu. I look forward to having it for dinner soon.

Thank You,

CristinaConsumers are flocking from cruelty to plant protein.
mauricePlease end the cruel treatment of chickens in your supply chain.
ClaudiaMcDonalds if you must serve chicken or any meat please use the most humane practices possible. It is bad enough that countless animals must die for your profit but at the very least let them have a decent life before they die. I have 5 children who will not eat in any of your restaurants until you change your practices. And I will be spreading this message to everyone I know. Act now to end cruelty!
HannahMore and more people are going for plant protein instead. You will get more business if follow the trend as well.
KerriMcDonald's has touted its “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes," but fast growth continues to cripple birds in the fast-food titan's supply chain.

Millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty--and toward kinder plant-based protein, and chains like White Castle are serving this growing market with plant-based patties.

In Finland and Sweden, McDonald's now offers a "McVegan burger," after a hugely successful test period. Tell McD's you want a vegan burger in the US, too!

JeannePlease be a leader in compassion and basic decency. All animals must be treated humanely. Whether you like it or not the world is going vegan for all the right reasons. There are so many delicious meat substitutes McDonald's should be offering. You are missing out on a huge market of hungry vegans.
DeaThe public has no choice but to learn how animals who survive the harsh conditions of farms are rewarded with the horror of slaughter. They have no choice because we will not stop telling them. McDonald's has no choice but to stop torturing animals as fewer people are willing to be complicit in animals abuse by buying non vegan food.
SavannahI have not eaten at McDonald’s in years due to the unhealthy nature of their food. The animal cruelty is the topping on the cake. I will not ever take my children, or anyone for that matter, to eat at McDonald’s. I do not and will not support them. I wil coninute to voice my option against McDonald’s.
JerriVegan all the way! For the Animals, My Health, and the Earth!
Have not been to a McD's in many years. Maybe I'd stop in if there were real Vegan options offered.
SugandhaMcD, as a leader in the fast food industry, you have the power and moral obligation to do what is right. As we all know, smart & caring creatures suffer terribly in factory farms (there is also scientific evidence to support this). Animals having a nervous system just like ours, they also have the same desires. Cruelty of any kind to any animal is never right. Just honestly watch animal rights videos factory farms,honestly. Please, do the right thing!

I used to go to McDonald's couple of times a week but ever since seeing this cruelty and choosing to live a more compassionate lifestyle, I rarely go now.
Please introduce the McVegan. Thank you

J.P.Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.

As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Chains like White Castle, TGI Fridays, BurgerFi, and Tropical Smoothie are already catering to the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
TerryMcDonald’s is lagging behind your competitors such as White Castle, TGI Fridays, etc. who are offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s could do the same! Please help stop the unnecessary and inhumane suffering of chickens by offering vegan options and changing your chicken suppliers.
RichardPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions--and to add a vegan burger to its menu!
HusseinIt is time to offer healthier vegan foods that are also cruelty free.
LionelEnough is enough! Ditch the cruelty and convert to plant-based protein. As a consumer I've had enough of your lies and deceit. I want good, wholesome, cruelty-free fast food. Who knows? If you change your despicable ways you may even improve the bottom line of your balance sheet.
PatriciaPlease save the lives of these helpless Chickens.
EileenAs an animal welfare advocate and a vegan, I am writing to strongly urge McDonald's to implement a basic welfare policy that puts an end to some of the most egregious animal cruelty practices so prevalent in fast food businesses like yours including painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific "living" conditions. Animals are living, breathing, sentient beings who feel pain and suffer just as we do and it is time for such torturous profit-driven practices to come to an end.

Moreover, I urge McDonald's to join the growing number of food chains who have heard the pleas of compassionate consumers calling for a plant-based burger to be added to their menu. This action is a win-win for not only the animals and the consumers but for your company as the addition of a vegan burger will attract more customers who until now have been unable to find anything on your menu that is vegan friendly. Consumer interest in plant-based food products is skyrocketing, not only out of concern for animals and the environment but for the myriad health benefits of a vegan diet. To ignore this fact is to be out of step with current trends. Therefore, I call on you to introduce vegan options on your menu in the very near future.

Thank you for your serious consideration.
ChrisWe are asking you to implement a basic animal welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding and horrific living conditions of all animals in your supply chain and become a true food leader by a plant-based burger and other plant-based meal options to your menu.
BarbaraI am Vegan, and I rarely eat at McDonald's since the main option offered is salads. Most of the salads are not vegan friendly either. It would be nice to be able to get vegan food at your restaurant like other fast food places that offer them. I would like to try a McVegan burger or chicken nuggets that are not from real chickens. Think about expanding your market and moving toward a future of more plant based and suffering free foods.
MartinI'd love to return to McDonald's restaurants but they'll need to add more vegan dining options first.

Darlene15806 Peter Max Blvd
SandraI am going to cease going to McDonald's until major changes are made to how the chickens are stuffed together then stuffed with food so you can sell them. This is animal cruelty at its worst. I have always liked BK better but have been going to McDonald's as my boyfriend likes some of your food but now I won't be a McDonald's customer until the chickens are placed in a humane area and treated humanely.
AudraI currently do not eat at McDonald's or any other restaurant that doesn't have vegetarian/vegan options. I would gladly have at McDonald's probably daily if a plant based protein was offered. I would feel so much better about eating there if they committed to improving lives of the animals they depend on, the animals who live their short lives in mysery so that nuggets and burgers and fish filets, because what would we do without those things?/s Get with the times 🙂

VickiA vegan burger would be a great addition to your menu, along with vegan cheese, vegan sausage and pancakes made with vegan egg substitute and biscuits made with soy or almond milk! As it is now, there is NOTHING on your menu I can eat. Even when I want a cup of coffee, you don't have soy or almond milk creamer for me. PLEASE OFFER VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
Thank you!

Please think about sinless voiceless animals!
NikkiI used to eat McDonald’s every week prior to becoming a vegan. In 2001 I stopped eating meat and since then I have not eaten McDonald’s due to their lack of concern for animal welfare. More and more people are moving toward healthier and more animal-compassionate consumerism. It’s time you caught up before you get left behind. Progress will not wait for you.
DanStop the carnage of these social, senscient beings. They feel, they think just as we feel and think. And this contributes greatly to environmental problems and climate change.
CHRISTINEPlease require your chicken suppliers to make meaning welfare changes - or change suppliers. Many of your competitors have already done so and you are lagging behind. Even better, you could also add some vegan options to your menu, including a vegan burger.
Margaret5387 Crawford Road
SandraPlease switch your priorities to promote plant protein. We all have to switch to reduce methane emissions sooner or later. We have two years left to avert severe climate changes that will make the planet uninhabitable. It's simply not sustainable to eat any kind of meat, and there is ample science to show it's heart healthy and reverses diabetes type II. If I can be of help for educational purposes or peer-reviewed science citations, please let me know. Thank you.
CynthiaI support fast food establishments that offer a veggie burger option. The way these poor creatures are treated is horrific!
JoannePlease McDonald's, make humane progress great again! Reduce the suffering. Offer plant protein menu items!!!
KATHYPlease offer vegan burgers! They are healthier less destructive to the environment and cruelty free
JamesStart serving vegan options. And quit sponsoring the suffering of animals.
ManiHundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies. If a human baby grew that quickly, she’d be 660 pounds at just two months of age!

As McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein.

JennaPlant based products are the future. Be bold McDonalds.
LaurieThis is horrible!
Rev. RoalndAs a member of the clergy I find it offensive that anyone or any organization would disrespect God's creation. When God created the animals of the earth on the sixth day it was never his plan for those animals to be confined, abused or denied the opportunity to perform their natural God-given functions. Not one sparrow falls that goes unnoticed by God and when we harm any of God's creatures we harm God as well. I cannot fathom how much pain McDonald's has already inflicted upon the Lord, and continues to inflict. It is unfortunate that McDonald's chooses cash over compassion and money over mercy. In the end you will be accountable for the great evils you intentionally inflict on our fellow creatures. I pray God will show more mercy upon you than you have shown to that which God loves and cherishes.
LindaMcDonald's it is high time you faced the music to see just how many vegetarians and vegans there are in every country of the world now, and they are increasing every year. To win over this growing population I would think that you would certainly want to start offering non-cruelty items at your stores.
Redesign with the times!! This is no longer the meat eating 1950's!!! (Thank God)
Steven GoldsteiinSuper size your humanity, McDonalds.

MarshaPlease make the compassionate choice to stop supporting cruelty towards chickens in your supply chain. Adopt a meaningful welfare policy for chickens, as so many of your competitors have done, and put an end to this abuse!
JillI am a shareholder and expect MCD to adjust its practices to guarantee better treatment of animals!
CameronDear McDonald's, I've missed you since going vegan last year. Please start offering vegan options so I can be one of your patrons again! Vegan chicken tenders taste almost exactly like the real thing, and the Beyond Burger is delish. Just some suggestions! Thanks.
BonnieThank you for your consideration.
CarolIt would seem to be in the companies best interest to respond to the millions of its customer's complaints about the lack of sensitivity the company has shown toward the factory farmed animals used in their products. This situation must be addressed immediately. It is an urgent matter both in terms of customer service as well as common decency. Animal cruelty cannot be allowed to needlessly continue like this when steps could easily be taken to rectify the situation and help animals live healthy and happy lives prior to slaughter, instead of needlessly torturing them.

Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

Thank you.
ScottDear McDonald's:

Hundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. So why is McDonald’s refusing to be a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu, and refusing to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions of the chickens???
KMcDonalds:
I stopped eating at any McDonald's places long ago, because I have seen the horrendous conditions chickens have to suffer. "Cruelty Free" is the future of restaurants, and you can't even see it. Just from the marketing standpoint, you are being stubbornly behind the times, and will become obsolete unless you embrace, and advertise, your new stance on cruelty.
Stephanie2171A S.W. 90th Avenue
JudyI never set foot in a McDonalds for a number of reasons, including the vast, factory raised chickens whose corpses are served in your restaurant and your vast carbon footprint. Serve a vegan burger and I'd consider patronizing McDonalds.
JodiPlease implement an animal welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding and horrific living conditions from your suppliers. Consumers want ethically raised meat - and a growing number of consumers are looking for meat alternatives at fast food establishments. Please step up and keep up with the times.
Karen500 Seaview Drive
SheilaPLease be a leader and stop this horrific cruelty. Please start introducing vegan options,, how about a vegan burger? More and more people are starting to eat only plant based foods. People everywhere are learning the truth of the horrors we inflict on animals, in this case, poor innocent sensitive chickens, People are shunning meat and dairy . Join the movement to a plant based diet! It's a very big world wide movement!
pWhere did I get the idea two or so decades ago that McDonald's subscribed to humane treatment of the animals it makes its money from (they get paid not one cent, but instead suffer a life of abuse)?

No more breakfast sandwiches for me, chicken sandwiches, or chicken nuggets. In fact, no more McDonald's until I know that the animals are treated humanely. Gross growth is not humane for animal OR mankind.

In the past few decades, girls' breasts have been growing very large at a younger age than before. And I have wondered about the implications of that on breast cancer. I will be looking for studies on that.

A wholesome. humane McDonald's...would be nice.

Thank you.

Patricia Perron
BarbaraPlease show compassion for animals.
LukeI would consider eating at McDonald's if they offered vegan, plant-based food options.
ValeriePlease tell your supplier that you won't buy chickens who have been raised in crowded inhumane conditions and raised to grow to full adult size in 6 1/2 weeks. And please offer a vegan burger on your menu. That's why I eat at Taco Bell and not McDonalds - because I can eat vegan at Taco Bell but not at McDonalds. Thanks
TeresaPlease do the right thing and improve the welfare of these poor animals. It is the least you could do.
JanPlease first of all, offer a vegan burger!

Also, please address the suffering of the animals that you kill for food. Stop severe crowding in facilities and extreme growth breeding, all of which cause extreme suffering for the animals.

Finally, these animals suffer greatly in the slaughter process. Another form of killing must be used, such as the "gas" form, with gas and oxygen deprivation, after the animals are unconscious.

Thank you for your attention to this very important ongoing concern.

SPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme overcrowding, and horrific living conditions birds and animals are enduring because of your quick demand for flesh. As consumers are becoming more ethical with their food and moving away from fast food and an animal-based diet in favor of a plant-based diet, you are going to see a decrease in demand for the unethical food being served in your restaurant You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. The choice is yours!
DarleneIt is unethical to torture any animal and that includes chickens/.
CynthiaPLEASE STOP THE BARBARIC KILLINGS OF INNOCENT ANIMALS !!!
Kermit R. DavisMcDonald's should do much, much better in using humane supply chains. Consumers are becoming more and more knowledgeable about the sources of their food and the unacceptable treatment of farm animals. This is a trend that will continue to grow. I'm a vegetarian, so I do not eat at McDonald's or any other fast food place, for that matter. A plant based diet is the preferred diet of the medical community and it is the only sustainable diet moving forward. I love my vegetable-based diet. I get ample protein and my food is delicious. Being a vegetarian or vegan has never been easier.
ShaynaThe massive suffering doesn't fly with consumers! McDonald's you need to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu.

SachaPlease include more plant-based items and a veggie burger like the Beyond Burger on your menu. As consumers, with so much awareness of the destructive and cruel practices of factory farming, we are looking to some of America's oldest and most beloved companies that provide us with food for our families to rise up and make big changes that will benefit us, the animals and the planet. Winston Churchill said "a nation without a conscious is a nation without a soul." Let us lead the way!
DaleDear Sir,

I am aware that your animals live in filthy crowded sheds for the duration of their lives. It is a well known fact that chickens are very smart sentient beings who need time outside to stretch their wings, bask in the sunlight, and pluck at the grass. Because of the conditions your animals have to live, I have stopped eating at McDonald's and have urged others to do the same, and will continue to spread the word until cruelty is non-existent.

Sincerely,
Miss Dale Morris
DebraCome on McDonald's, YOU should know better! WHY would you want these animals to suffer? Now that the consumer sees the truth, I think they will think twice about going to your restaurant.

Im not vegan but sometimes i want a vegan option because im trying to eat better for my health and the environment. Get on board mcdonalds!!! Otherwise i eat elsewheres.
MarkIt is a disgrace how you torture these defenseless Chickens. I haven't eaten in a McDonalds in 10 years and even if you had plant based items on your menu, I could never in good conscious set foot in or buy anything from a corporation which is as cruel and unfeeling toward the welfare of these beautiful birds. How do you sleep at night?
deirdreCastletroy Limerick, ireland
JanMost consumers, when they learn about the cruelty imposed on farmed animals will switch to a less cruel and more compassionate alternative. McDonald's has many competitors in the fast food business. Many of your customers will switch to your competitors who implement basic welfare policies. I will not buy McDonald's products until you implement some sort of welfare policy to minimize suffering.
YvonneAnimals matter, so let us create a world that cares for animals!
RobinStop treating your chickens as if they have no feelings or intelligence. This is no worse than what happened to the Jews. Stop it, you have the solution, please use it.

JennyI would like McDonald's to consider a veggie burger. Follow suit with Burger King who offers one and Taco Bell, which has many vegetarian options. Fortunately, we are becoming more informed about how much healthier a vegetarian option is - better for the environment and considerably better for the animals that suffer on factory farms, such as, where you source your meat from.
MarianCome up with a great McVegan burger and I just might come back to McDonalds.

tinaWill never go to McDonald's...and will also encourage friends, family, and the children at the school that I work at to boycott Mc Donalds too.
PranavTimes are changing. McDonald's needs to create an animal welfare policy for the chickens as well as other animals it uses for food. In addition, McDonald's needs to add vegan options for its menus. As more and more consumers turn towards plant-based foods, McDonald's menu should reflect that.
Barak StewartThe billions of animals suffering through your food system and killed every year are just as intelligent as the dogs and cats we love. These animals deserve better. You have the resources and ability to be a leader of animal welfare. Its time for McDonald's to act.

LaniI used to go to McDonald's at least once a week for lunch. When I start learning how McDonald's treats their livestock,
I was sickened by these horrible stories. I stopped going to McDonald's years ago and have not gone back since.

This is unacceptable to put profit over the well being of living creatures.
Beverly SchmitzPlease do the humane thing and let these chickens roam free so they are having to sit or lay in their own feces. Stop breeding them to grow so large they fall over and can't get back up! Who wants to eat a chicken that's been laying in it's own waste. The overcrowding is unthinkable for these animals.
ShelleyHundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year.

These curious, sensitive, and intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, unable to engage in many of their natural behaviors.

Trapped in a life on factory farms, they are also painfully trapped in their own morbidly obese bodies. Bred to grow so unnaturally large and fast, their legs often collapse under their weight.

Please implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions--and to add a vegan burger to your menu!
NicholasOnly source from cage free animals and a healthy diet without additives.
DanikaPlease implement a welfare policy that addresses animals' living conditions in a meaningful and significant way. I would also love to see a vegan burger at all McDonald's like many fast food chains already offer.
LuAnnJust do what's right!
Dave and RitaOur family boycotts McDonalds due to the company's support of horrific cruelty to chickens. The rapid growth, extreme crowing and inhumane living conditions of these animals is barbaric and brutal!

We are urging you to offer a vegan burger at all your restaurants soon! Once we know of your contempt of cruelty, we will likely be customers but not until then!

Thank you for your consideration!
FAs McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein.

JanWe’ll skip eating at McDonald’s until a cruel free source for chicken is used.
JuliaI am disappointed that McDonalds isn't more concerned about the basic welfare of the animals they use for their food. There is no justification for not committing to humane practices.

I will be watching closely to see whether McDonalds will reconsider and implement basic welfare policies for the animals they profit from. Unless they do, my family and I will not buy from them.
SamanthaFor too long, animals have been exploited for profit.

VictoriaPlease think about bringing kindness into your menu....There are new plant based meats such as Beyond Meat Burgers that are far superior to meat...Using plant based meats is not only healthier..it is without cruelty...it does not have the over head that raising cattle and keeping them fed and watered on a minute by minute basis that occurs with cows...there is not enough land..there is not enough water...keeping cows for consumption is not sustainable..it is cruel...and the world is ready for change...it is a new world..the world wants cruelty free products that do not hurt the earth...that do not hurt the oceans...do not hurt animals..and that do not hurt people...

There is Just Clean Meat that will be coming to market somewhere around 2018 of this year. Your company may want to look into it. It is meat made out of the cells of real animals. It is cruelty free..it does not have the overhead that raising cattle and housing has...it is far more profitable for your company and plant based and Just clean meats are something you can be proud of..it is something that does not have to be covered in shame like the Big Ag Industry..

Look It Up!!! Just Clean Meats..It is a new World..A Kinder World.. It Does No Harm To Any living Being or The Planet
SharonIt is time to make changes!!
PeggyI would like to see McDonalds also turn to cruelty free methods for obtaining all of their meat and dairy products. Such a giant company could impact other companies and bring in new customers who feel this is very important!
JamesMassive suffering won’t fly with consumers! Join us in asking the company to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu
GeorgeTime to do the proper thing,please .
JenniferPlease offer more plant based options.
DavidAnimals are not humans...agree...but they are sentient. As humans, with the ability to understand what this means, why don't we act like it? I'll challenge anyone to debate why the dignity of being human should not encompass compassion.
RavenAnimals are sentient beings who were put here for their own purpose . . . . not to be exploited and murdered by humans. They are friends, not food.
MarinaNo more cruelty !!!
patWE NEED PLANT BASED PROTEINS FROM YOU!!!!
DorothyPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding and horrific living conditions of chickens. Also, please add plant-based burgers to your menus. Thank you.
RubyAll the different kinds of McDonald's burgers were my favorite, until I learned of the horrific animal involved with the products.

I would urge McDonald's to offer some vegan burgers so that I may enjoy dining at McDonald's again.
AngelaMcDonald's: Who specifically (name) stands in the way of change and thereby promotes suffering, in this instance?

Please reconsider .

NoelPlease do something 🙏🏻💔💔😢😢😢😢
FrancoisPlease I want to buy vegan burger MacDonald
MariannePlease!
MikeI am a huge fan of plant-based protein substitutes. You can be a leader in this effort, bringing affordable alternatives to literally millions of customers.
SelenaPlease add vegan or at least vegetarian options. My family & I have been getting veggie burgers every Friday at other places & at burger king every other Friday. But McDonald's would be more convient for us. I have a big Puerto Rican family & although most of them are meat eaters they like to follow my lead somewhat & be healthy. They actually like the veggie burgers & tend to buy those more often for health reasons especially with the diabetes in the family. You'd get a lot of customers thru our family & friends. Keep up with the times please & add vegan options so every one can be included.
Suzanne gollerGo cruelty free...
CarolineSo many people are choosing plant-based foods now, even just for some of their meals. It is less costly for you as an organization and better for the environment to have vegan options. It makes sense all around that you would offer vegan options. Please do so! Then you will have many new customers!
Irenethis massive suffering won’t fly with consumers!
RuthWe share this planet. It is not ours for the taking. As one of the most intelligent life forms, we have as duty to take care of other species.I am not against eating meat or poultry per se. What I am against is eating flesh form creatures which have endured an inhumane existence.
You are affluent enough to breed chickens which have had a decent life.
Please do something to improve your practices.
ValerieCan't you please include a vegan burger or options on your menu for those of us who don't want to eat chickens raised in such appalling circumstances?
RedElisaWhat you are doing to God's living,breathing creatures is horribly cruel and inhumane.You don't need to do this.

Besides a vegan option,respect God's gifts and treat the chickens with love and compassion!
MelindaPlease change for the welfare of animals as well as the good of the people and the planet. If that isnt enough then consider the fact that Vegans are on the rise and there is a large market you are losing money in. If you made more cruelty free offerings people would purchase. Krogers, walmart, Burger King, Dominos, Mug Shots, Subway and tons of others are now expanding their Vegan options and McDonalds should too. Please do it for humanity. You can lead the way.
Dennisthis massive suffering won’t fly with consumers!
MichellePlease institute basic animal welfare practices into your food suppliers
MelissaPlease get a veggie burger for the menu.
Margot156 Blue Point Road
EvanPlease add vegan options to all McDonald’s restaurants world wide. Be a part of progressive change.
jamilaI would like to see McDonald's take consumers opinions more seriously and implement actual animal welfare reforms for the billions of chickens in your supply chain. Right now, you're sourcing from suppliers who have unnatural growth rates for birds, thereby crippling them, and who also do not provide enough natural enrichment and emotional opportunities for chickens. Your competitors, among them Burger King and TGI Fridays (who I am now patronizing again after a hiatus of many years because they had no vegan options, but have recently added the Beyond Burger to their menu, and I love it!!) are already taking steps to change with the times and offer more vegan options as well as source from suppliers who care more about animals. It's time for McDonald's to do the same--maybe then, I can go back to eating at McDonald's, for, much like TGI Friday's used to be, McDonald's isn't very vegan friendly.
Thank you,
Jamila HadjSalem

SherriePlease offer a cruelty free plant based menu in the US!
CorinneMcDonald's needs to listen to their customers It's not enough to refuse rain forest beef
DeborahStart selling vegan burgers. Beyond meat sells one you can make tons of money on. They are so good they almost taste like regular burgers. (so I've heard)
JudyIt's time to accept that people are leaning towards humane treatment of animals bred to feed us. I pay more for organic products, including meat and free range organic eggs. I hear more & more people blasting McDonalds for offering unhealthy fare and I think McDonalds is feeling it in their pockets. Add to this inhumane treatment of animals in its supply chain and McDonalds will really be hurting in the future.
ErnieAs perhaps the leader of fast food chains, McDonald’s must take the lead in ending cruelty and in the conservation of this planet.
EllenGet ready, McDonald’s. We have had it, and the public is being educated about your methods.
LenoraMcDonald’s- you have yet to address the massive sources of suffering in birds in your supply chain! Dozens of your competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.
Millions of American consumers are moving away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein. Dozens of restaurant chains are already meeting the needs of the massive, growing market of compassionate eaters by offering vegan burgers and sandwiches. McDonald’s Finland and Sweden also recently rolled out a “McVegan” burger after a massively successful test period–but their US counterpart’s menu offers no vegan burger and abounds with cheap, cruelly produced meat. American consumers are eager for a McVegan burger too! It’s time for McDonald’s US to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger.
This massive suffering won’t fly with consumers! I STRONGLY URGE you to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu!

JessicaThe massive suffering of chickens won’t fly with consumers!
HannahAs McDonald’s lags behind on animal welfare, millions of American consumers are flocking away from this cruelty–and toward kinder, plant-based protein.
DavePlease look to alternatives at least for meat, and source eggs from other locations.
BrandonPlease make your chicken with plant-based protein, not from chickens cruelly raised on factory farms.
Bridget29561 Lazy Pine Dr.
ShawnceyThere should be a variety of vegan alternatives available.
MargeStop cruelty to animals
Lynette RidderThe way farm animals are treated sickens me and is the reason I stopped eating meat years ago. That's also why I stopped going to fast food places such as McDonalds. These days consumers are more aware of animal suffering. I urge you to implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, horrific living conditions, and to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu. Thank you!
Lisa22 Twin River Drive
lynnMcDonald's this is blatant and massive cruelty! I will not support you in any way!
MargeAnimal welfare is important
JudyDo not support animal cruelty. Be careful with your sources. Offer vegan alternatives, too.
MelissaPlease stop torturing these poor helpless animals!
CarolynI am a vegetarian and would very much like to see a cruelty -free menu at McDonald's. I like McDonald's and enjoy your salads and milk shakes and believe that you would like to see a more cruelty-free world just as I would. Please offer Vegan and vegetarian burgers and Vegan and vegetarian sandwiches. There are a lot of plant based alternatives that taste similar to meat and have similar textures, such as soy hot dogs, soy burgers and soy or plant based chicken alternatives. You can be a true leader in doing this, and it will broaden your customer base. Most importantly it saves the lives of all those intelligent and sensitive beings that are being slaughtered.
Thank you for listening.

joyPlease use humane practices, also please add a vegan option on your menu. Thank you.
stephanieHello,
I want you to ban the animal cruelties are the standard practices in your chicken supplier chain and change to the Global Animal Partnership standards. If you do not ban the animal cruelties in your chicken supplier chain and change to the Global Animal Partnership standards, then I am going to tell everybody about you support animal cruelties and tell everybody to boycott your companies.

Stephanie Peron
FionaPlease implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions–and become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your menu.
Thank you for your consideration.
LouisePlease include more Vegán options on your menu.
AnneSo disturbed & disgusted by the inhumane way the chickens in your supply chain are treated. You’re losing customers who care about the way animals are treated before becoming someone’s meal. Many other companies who support humane treatment will be my new choice.
GEROLYNNThere needs to be more Vegetarian options as the number of people who have this diet. Cruelty I WILL NOT SUPPORT !!!!!!
JoyAs a consumer it would seem any intelligent thinking being would believe in purchasing chickens from a supplier who offers free range and natural feed to animals. I assume you are those people and request that any business with suppliers who raise chickens in manner but free range and natural feed be removed from your restaurants. I also request a vegan burger be offered in all USA restaurants as it is the future of our countries eating habits and will continue to grow.

Thank you
Janis5220 Royal Dr.
AnnaEliminate cruelty, offer vegetarian choices!
JohnThe Movie Documentary "The Game Changers" proven HOW HARMFUL animal protein is! Even ROMAN GLADIATORS weren't meat eaters!

McDonald's best aspect is the many locations....where you can use the restrooms for free.

So MANY other Fast Food places serving chicken have made this change!!
PatI'm all in!
MariIt’s time to stop this inexcusable cruelty!
ValerleMcDonald's it's time to go with tide of people who are looking for humane food. Please stop using eggs from factory farms and give us a VEGAN BURGER.
Thank you.
CarolAnimals should not be cruelly and inhumanely killed for my food. There are viable options.
lisa250 U.S. 206
karenPlease show compassion and not only take steps to improve your animal welfare but also add more plant-based proteins to your menu. If you care about your bottom line, you'll know that animal agriculture is unsustainable long term and more consumers are looking for plant-based foods. Be a leader in this movement and act now!
RobinLet's get more plant-based! It's good for everybody!
CarolIt’s time McDonalds!!
JadePlease do better in your efforts of compassion towards chickens! Offer plant protein options if you'd like my business!!
AndreaThe world is changing people do not think it is acceptable to abuse animals and many more people than in the past need plant based options.

DanaI am a vegan and would like to see a vegan burger on McDonald's menu.
AdelinaBelgium
FredaI live near some of these mega-factories. Trust me, these birds are nothing more than $$ to the overseers; so much to the extent that they have to have these horrible conditions to play the "numbers game" for enough to survive to make it to market. It is a vicious rat race of birds in and birds out --dead, alive or maimed to their next horrific destination. If the animals were raised humanely, I propose that these companies' bottom line would actually increase. More chickens would survive, more line workers would survive with arms in tact and less inputs would be needed to perpetuate this unnatural and unfair system. P.S. if you began to serve a plant based sandwich, I might actually visit McDonald's again after my 18-year hiatus.
JessicaNo more cruelty!
JenniferGood afternoon,

As a former McDonald's customer, I am urging your organization to step up as a true food leader and dish out a vegan burger. Multiple fast food chains are making the healthy addition, and it would be wonderful for your organization to do the same. American consumers are hungry for a McVegan burger option.

Thanks so much!
Jennifer
LeslieAlthough McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain.

Your missing out on the huge wave of consumers who are flocking to compassionate and healthy food choices.

CherylYou are not making me McHappy McDonalds. Your business was designed to target children and you succeeded. That is still true today.

How do you think children would react if they knew their precious McNuggets were the result of unimaginable cruelty to chickens?

Until you are able and/or willing to end your participation in animal cruelty, I will continue tospread the word about your promotion od unsoeakable cruelty to animals.

In addition, Finland and Sweden, McDonald's now offers a "McVegan burger," after a hugely successful test period. Please bring the McVegan burger to the U.S and U.K!!
GaryHundreds of millions of chickens are raised and killed for the McDonald’s menu every year. These sensitive, intelligent birds are crowded by the thousands in filthy, ammonia-ridden sheds, deprived of the ability to engage in many of their natural behaviors. They are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so unnaturally fast that their legs often collapse under the weight of their own morbidly obese bodies. If a human baby grew that quickly, she’d be 660 pounds at just two months of age!

Although McDonald’s has touted its new “global commitment to source chickens raised with improved welfare outcomes,” it has yet to address these massive sources of suffering in birds in its supply chain. Meanwhile, dozens of McDonald’s competitors have committed to requiring basic changes from their chicken suppliers–changes that would reduce the severe crowding on factory farms and the crippling effects of rapid growth.

PamelaCountry raised by farmers I haven't eaten an animal in decades. Where's the veggie burgers?
BarbaraLarge corporations are starting to face the fact that more people are turning to eating more of a plant-based diet and realizing there are profits to be made. I never even think to go to a McDonald's because I don't eat meat but I'd be more likely to if there were plant-based options.
LaraPlease implement a rigorous animal welfare policy for the animals served for food in your restaurant that addresses painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions.

Additionally, I urge you to become a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to your American menu! It will be a success!!

JulieAll animal cruelty MUST STOP NOW!!! We can do better than this. Our animals, our health, and our environment need a plant based diet!
PaulaCompassion is always right
KarenEach day, the demand for plant-based foods have been growing at an alarming rate. My family went to a casual vegan restaurant this Saturday---with reservations--and still had to wait nearly 45 minutes for our seat (which in any other restaurant would not have waited). The realization of the horrific cruelty that exists among the meat producers as well as the benefits to the environment as our health is finally making it's way into the lives of millions--so this is our future and I hope you get on board sooner than later.
KennyWe will no longer buy at McDonald's if this does not stop immediately.
DanDear McDonald's

Please consider more healthy vegan options for consumers in the USA. I'd love to go to the restaurant more if there were more meat free sandwiches that I could select.

Thank you.
GeneCruelty has no place in my life style!
LAURA PLUMBDear McDonald's,

I have not eaten at your restaurant since becoming vegetarian in 2002, then vegan in 2013. I wish you had plant-based options (a side-salad, hold the cheese, hold the croutons, hold the dressing does NOT count). For people who do still eat animals, but want to reduce animal cruelty, please address the animal welfare issues in your supply chain, such as painful rapid growth, extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions. Cows, chickens, and pigs are intelligent and sensitive animals that feel pain, stress, and do not deserve the cruel treatment they face at factory farms and slaughter houses.

For vegans like me who will not abide by any animal cruelty, please add plant-based options to your menu, like a vegan burger, vegan chicken sandwich, and vegan french fries. Boca has a great vegan "chicken" patty you could use to make vegan chicken sandwiches. Just Mayo, Follow Your Heart, and other brands have vegan mayonnaise you could use. Follow Your Heart also has vegan cheese slices that are really good! Adding hearty vegan options would increase your consumer base dramatically.

Thank you for your time and consideration of my suggestions.

Sincerely,
Laura
KathieThe only way McDonald's will attract people to check out the veg burger and get more customers is to be compassionate in all ways they can

DarrenIt’s bad enough that so many people that are aware of the facts continue to eat meat but until you go completely plantpowered company wide, at least start the process on animal welfare.
GaryThe McDonald's Corporation has such power to bring true change to the food industry. McDonald's can change how chickens, hogs, and cattle are raised and also bring a greater choice of plant-based protein menu options so fewer animals are raised as food commodities. Please show the world that McDonald's does care and is a true leader in these changing times.
CarolI haven't purchased anything at a McDonalds in over 20 years - not even a coffee - and I love coffee. Just the smell of your "restaurants" makes me sick. They smell of CRUELTY.
VirginiaI urge you to include a veggie burger to your menu for those opposed to animal cruelty. I also urge you to only buy from suppliers who humanely raise their chickens and beef cattle--without antibiotics that humans end up consuming in retail products!
LaurenPLEASE implement a basic welfare policy that addresses painful rapid growth of the chickens you manufacture, the extreme crowding, and horrific living conditions they are subjected to for their entire lives. ZBecome a true food leader by adding a plant-based burger to its menu. You have the power to make more of a difference in the history of animal welfare than anyone else.

RuthMcDonald's: There is a whole market you are missing - vegetarians like myself who find the cruelty in the food chain unacceptable. How about some soy-based burgers for us? And if you do offer chicken products, please require your suppliers to give the chickens decent living conditions before they become food.
BarryCompassion and kindness are the key words here: Your company is in a position of strength to force your suppliers to change their cruel ways and begin to treat farm animals with a decent life. It's way past time!
