Animals score another win! General Mills has agreed to ban all experiments on animals for the purpose of making health claims about its foods after talks with PETA about the cruelty of animal studies and their irrelevance to humans.
The company joins a growing list of businesses that have worked with PETA to swear off health studies on animals, including Yakult Honsha, House Foods, Kikkoman, Barilla, ITO EN, Ltd., Coca-Cola, Lipton, POM Wonderful, Welch’s, and Ocean Spray.
We’ll continue working to help other food and beverage brands make the same commitment and to replace government-mandated experiments on animals with advanced humane science.
