Costco is being called out for selling eggs from chickens raised in cages, which activists argue is animal cruelty.
In the last couple weeks, Brad Pitt and Bill Maher have both spoken out against Costco.
Pitt sent a letter to the company's CEO asking the company to change its ways,"As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings."
