Bill Maher: Why Does IHOP Refuse To Use Cage-Free Eggs? (VIDEO)

Bill Maher and The Humane Society have banded together to create this video urging IHOP to follow the lead of other fast food chains by switching to cage-free eggs. Major restaurant chains like Denny's, Burger King, Wendy's, Quiznos, Hardee's and Carl's Jr have started using some cage-free eggs, though making the switch to 100% caged-free can take up to 4 years. Maher and The Humane Society fight a valiant battle, but the team doesn't mention that the conditions for cage-free birds are not ideal- often the birds are crammed together on the floor of a barn where they never see daylight or the outdoors.
