PETA Unhappy With ‘Sesame Street’ Egg Sponsorship

Nov 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

“Sesame Street” has taken on The American Egg Board as a corporate sponsor and that has People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals unhappy, B&C reports.

The corporate spots promote the Egg Board’s Good Egg Project, which PETA says misleads children into believing eggs are wholesome. PETA contends in an online campaign that eggs “are linked to multiple serious health problems” and “the egg industry horribly abuses animals.”

Sesame Workshop, the show’s parent, said that it isn’t endorsing the board by taking the sponsorship money.

  1. While I understand and can appreciate PETA’s stand on chicken factories, I don’t understand people who don’t respect the food chain.
    Now, I’m kinda in the mood for an omelet.
