Lowe's Foods Joins Humane Society's ProtectSeals Campaign

The Humane Society of the United States said yesterday that regional grocer Lowe's Food Stores has joined its ProtectSeals campaign to "stop the cruel and unnecessary slaughter of baby harp seals by commercial fishermen in Canada."

With headquarters in Winston-Salem, N.C. and more than 100 grocery stores, Lowe's Food Stores is the third -- and the largest -- North Carolina-based grocery chain to join the ProtectSeals campaign this spring, the Humane Society said. Lowe's Food Stores are located in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Lowe's Foods joins more than 3,600 restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, and casinos across the United States that have pledged to avoid buying Canadian seafood.

Other campaign participants include Harris Teeter, Earth Fare, Legal Sea Foods, Whole Foods Markets, Trader Joe's, Margaritaville Cafes, Ted Turner's Ted's Montana Grill, Oceanaire Seafood Room, and Bon Appetit Management Company, according to the Humane Society.
