By Lisa Baertlein LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Taco Bell said on Monday its more than 6,000 U.S. fast-food restaurants would stop using eggs laid by caged hens by Jan. 1, 2017, years ahead of the deadlines set by its bigger rivals. The announcement came amid mounting pressure on Taco Bell to remove artificial ingredients, to source products from more humanely raised animals and to match Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s Corp , Subway and other rivals’ commitments to sourcing meat raised with fewer antibiotics. McDonald’s said in September its 16,000 U.S. and Canadian restaurants would switch to cage-free eggs within 10 years.
