Update 2: When it comes to saving embryos, Campbells Soul is mmm, mmm good! *Solae Too* (Pepsi, Kraft, & Nestle, not so much)

{This post has been updated with more info as well as email addresses & phone numbers. Update 2 – Solae has announced they have severed ties as well!}

Yesterday I noticed some disturbing headlines such as “Company Uses Cells from Abortions to Test Artificial Flavors.”

A pro-life group has called for a boycott of food companies that maintain a business relationship with the guilty company, Senomyx.

They included food giants PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, Campbell Soup, Solae and Nestle.

After contacting all the mentioned groups, Campbell Soup Company responded:

Juli Mandel Sloves, Senior Manager of Nutrition & Wellness Communications at Campbell Soup Company: “We are no longer in partnership with Senomyx. This fact was discussed during the Senomyx conference call with its investors earlier this month.”


{Update 2 – LifeSiteNews reports that Solae has severed ties with Senomyx as well!}

Now it’s time for Pepsi, Kraft and Nestle to follow suit.

In the meantime I’ll be purchasing Coca-Cola and Hershey products (well, after Lent ends) and avoiding Kraft products (which is tough, because they make a lot of products).

This is important to remember: whatever they tell you, there’s absolutely no need for Senomyx to use human embryonic cells for their research.

Here is the contact information for Senomyx and the food companies who they work with:

Kent Snyder, CEO
4767 Nexus Centre Drive
San Diego, California 92121

Paul Bulcke, CEO
Nestlé USA
800 North Brand Boulevard
Glendale, CA  91203

Jamie Caulfield, Sr.VP
PepsiCo, Inc.
700 Anderson Hill Road
Purchase, NY 10577

Irene Rosenfeld, CEO
Kraft Foods/Cadbury Chocolate
Three Lakes Drive
Northfield, IL 60093

My thanks to Steven Ertelt for finding the contact info in the first place.

Together, we really can encourage these companies to keep ties only with research companies that honor human life and dignity at all stages.

Update – to thank Campbell Soup for making the right call on severing ties with Senomyx click here. Solae has also severed its ties with Senomyx.

    Does anyone know whether Cadbury is owned by either Nestle or Kraft?

    While I undersand that it is hard to be aware of what companies support, it is nevertheless important to have the information available so you can make an informed purchase if you can.

    Can someone verify that Campbell’s is no longer in partnership for this reason or is it another reason? I think that is important to know. I don’t think Campbell’s is saying that they are against embryonic stem cell research here and that it was just a business decision.

    In making your point, thank you for prominently featuring the artwork of a notorious homosexual. I guess the Vatican does it too, so why not?
