Itasca, Sick. – Led by an enormous “surgically mutilated mouse,” PETA supporters will unfurl a banner on Thursday on the U.S. headquarters of a serious subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Ajinomoto Co. Inc.—the world’s largest producer of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and the proprietor of packaged frozen-food manufacturers Tai Pei, Ling Ling, and José Olé—to problem the corporate’s lethal exams on mice, canines, pigs, rats, and different animals.
When: Thursday, November 16, 12 midday
“Ajinomoto has tormented and killed mice, canines, and different animals in exams that aren’t required by legislation,” says PETA Vice President Shalin Gala. “PETA is asking on Ajinomoto to cease taking lives with a view to make doubtful human well being claims for advertising functions.”
Ajinomoto experimenters have compelled mice to combat one another, reduce their nerves, and injected them with poisonous medication; reduce open canines’ stomachs, starved them, and fed them MSG; inserted tubes into day-old piglets’ arteries and starved them; and electroshocked rats, amongst different pointless procedures. Dozens of different meals and beverage corporations world wide have stopped contributing to animal exams after speaking with PETA.
PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals are usually not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
