McDonald's USA unveils a new pork plan

(WFLX)- McDonald's USA unveils a new pork plan.

Executives say by 2022 the chain's American restaurants will only buy pork from farmers and other sources that do not use gestation stalls for pregnant sows.

Animal rights groups call the small stalls "inhumane".

Until then, McDonald's will work with producers and suppliers to phase out gestational stalls, and develop tracking systems.

The company announced in February it would work to phase out the use of the stalls, but now says those efforts will apply only to McDonald's U.S. businesses.
