BOCA to go eggless in 2010

Just a month after the launch of BOCA-egg-facts.com and Compassion Over Killing, Mercy for Animals, and the Animal Protection and Rescue League‘s combined campaign to convince BOCA to remove egg products from its line, BOCA has announced that all of its products will be eggless by 2010.

A BOCA spokesperson told COK, “I am pleased to let you know the BOCA brand will be eliminating eggs in all of its products by the end of this year. We anticipate all BOCA products will be egg free in 2010.”

E-mail BOCA to thank them for the change.

Craving a BOCA burger and can’t wait till the new year? (Or just tired of checking the backs of packages at the supermarket?) These BOCA foods are vegan: Chili, Vegan Burger, Chik’n Nuggets, Chik’n Patties, Spicy Chik’n Patties, and Ground Crumbles in the regular line and the Vegan Burger and Ground Crumbles in the Natural line.

    I e-mailed Boca to tell them I appreciated this initiative and got back the following response:

    “BOCA is committed to reducing our use of eggs by 10%. We are removing eggs from the BOCA All American Classic Burger made with organic soy. The work had begun and the new eggless BOCA All American Classic Burger made with organic soy will launch during the third quarter of this year. Changing ingredients can take time; we actively reviewing the remaining three products that contain eggs. We continue to review this matter.”

    Perhaps they haven’t updated their auto-reply message, but it doesn’t seem as promising as I had hoped.

    My auto-reply was significantly more promising: “We appreciate hearing comments like yours. Your comments mirror the numerous responses we’ve received from other health-conscious consumers.”

    Actually, Chik’N'Nuggets are NOT VEGAN. I read this the other day after buying them. I have always been loyal to boca especially for my “chikn” fix as Quorn uses eggs. But to my horror, I read that Boca’s Chik’N'Nuggets have 2% or less of egg whites. I am not willing to take that risk. And if it is such a small amount, why even put it in, BOCA? Do not trust lists that people make, ALWAYS read the labels for yourself.

    Essie,

    That ad showed up today; we’re trying to figure it out and decide whether or not to remove it. It’s possibly a satire intended to draw attention to the fact that labeling isn’t required for dairy products that come from cloned animals. Anyone out there have any idea who’s behind it and what it’s actually for?

    I would request to leave the ad in – it wont work here and thats an ad thats not being shown somewhere else. I actually would request that ppl click on it keeping that idiotic marketing mba on the job so he can run the company down

    I think it’s fake! I didn’t actually click through before. Seems to be a spoof site protesting labeling requirements (or lack thereof) on gmo and cloned foods. But I found the ad so off-putting (just because milk = nasty, cloning aside) that I missed the point!
