UPDATE: Unilever—the the world's largest tea maker, which makes the Lipton and PG Tips brands—has agreed to halt all animal tests. Please read here for more info.
If you're sipping Lipton, it was. The makers of Lipton tea have conducted (or paid others to conduct) painful, invasive tests on hundreds of animals—possibly more. Here are some of the details:
None of these tests were required by law. In fact, regulators have stated that animal tests are not sufficient to prove a health claim about a product. Please take a moment and urge the makers of Lipton to stop the crueltea to animals and to use modern, non-animal testing methods instead, just as Honest Tea, Stash, Twinings, Luzianne, and other tea companies already do.
