MSG Maker Starves, Electrocutes, and Mutilates Animals in Tests

Thousands of dogs, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, mice, rats, and fish have been tortured and killed by Japan-based conglomerate Ajinomoto Co. Inc.—the world’s largest manufacturer of the controversial food flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG) as well as the owner of packaged frozen food brands Tai Pei, Ling Ling, and José Olé. PETA is urging the company to end these worthless tests on animals, and we need your help!
