I actually don't buy eggs from Costco since most of their eggs are general white, caged eggs. I just prefer Free Run for the look and taste and while I do wish they had more free run options, I'm not going to stop shopping there.

Brad doesn't understand proletarians can only afford eggs if the chickens are handled this way

If you stop shopping at Costco because of this, you pretty much have to stop shopping everywhere due to similar atrocities in making many kinds of products. I shop at both Costco and my local grocery store and they all have the option to buy the caged bird eggs. But I still buy the free run eggs at my local No Frills.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Have they actually done this? If so, where do they get the blood? Wouldn't they have to harm a living thing to get blood?
If they get it from themselves, wouldn't it make more sense to donate it to the blood bank?
It's not blood, it's red paint

I don't normally buy eggs there.
I think I will next time just to balance the stupid.

I buy all my eggs there, why not? It's like $6.49 for two dozen omega-3 eggs, can't get them for that price anywhere else.

Don't really care about farmed-animal cruelty, I like my meats and they all end up in my stomach all the same.

Why hand-pick Costco though?
Going after a big name gets noticed more.

I wonder how many years since Brad Pitt has stepped foot in a grocery store. I imagine he has people doing all that for him. A Hollywood celebrity has very little influence on my shopping habits.

Saw on CNN this morning that the price of eggs for americans shot way up last month due to avian flu. The price is now $2.49 for a dozen eggs. Wow, now they r paying Canadian prices.
