Ok, it's not like I'm going to turn into a fan of McDonald's any time soon, but its reaction to a 20/20 investigation of one of its - now former - egg suppliers is at least encouraging.

For its part, ABC News not only interviews Mercy for Animals and uses the group's rather disturbing undercover footage of appalling caged hen conditions at Sparboe Farms in its report, but reporter Brian Ross referred to cruelty concerns as part and parcel of the problem, rather than as a footnote or not at all.

Meanwhile, McDonald's took swift action to end its business relationship with Sparboe and issued a statement which read in part:
"McDonald's expects all of our suppliers to meet our stringent requirements for delivering high quality food prepared in a humane and responsible manner."
