POM: Still tested on animals.
Welch’s juice company has just announced that it will no longer fund nutritional experiments on animals. PETA reports that the move came after PETA learned that the juice company was funding ridiculous “nutritional” experiments on animals—at the University of Wisconsin, the University of Illinois, and Tufts University—and vowed to launch a global boycott of the company unless it ended the cruel experiments.
Welch’s has now joined ranks with Sunny Delight, Old Orchard, SunSweet, Tampico, Cascadian Farms, Newman’s Own, Bolthouse Farms, Jamba Juice, and Campbell’s V8 juices, and many others that have signed PETA’s statement of assurance affirming that they do not test their juices on animals.
I was suprised to learn from the PETA press release that POM, Ocean Spray, and Tahitian Noni conduct nutritional experiments on animals, though such experiments are not required by law. Visit CaringConsumer.com to get involved in the campaign to stop ’em.
