Victory: No More Animal Testing for Lipton Tea!

Victory! I’m thrilled to announce that after more than 40,000 people worldwide, including supporters like you, took action against the makers of Lipton tea and after representatives from PETA and our affiliates in India and Europe flew to London to meet with Unilever—the world’s largest tea maker including the Lipton and PG tips brands—the company has agreed to end all non-required animal testing for their teas and tea-based beverages worldwide.

With this victory, the suffering of animals for Lipton and PG tips teas ends. As you know, the company behind Lipton tea cut holes into rats’ intestines and fed them tea ingredients through a tube in their throats; infected piglets with E. coli toxin and cut their intestines apart while they were still alive; killed mice by suffocating them and breaking their necks; cut off rabbits’ heads; and conducted other cruel tests that involved tormenting and killing animals simply to study the health effects of its tea products and ingredients. Not one of the experiments that the company conducted was legally required for beverage makers, and regulators have stated that animal tests are not required to prove a health claim about a food or beverage product.

Thanks to all our members like you who called, e-mailed, and boycotted Lipton tea products!

Please take a moment to thank Lipton for its prompt and compassionate decision by e-mailing the company using its contact form.

With your help, we look forward to many more victories for animals who suffer and die in laboratories. Please remember to buy only products, such as Lipton tea, that are not tested on animals.

Thank you for your compassion for all animals.

Very truly yours,
Ingrid E. Newkirk
President
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

  1. The first words to come to mind were jumping Jehoshaphat, That’s crazy >.>, and People want to call the humans who have sex with a different species bad? Humans should bow their heads in shame, and apologize to the sexualities, and all that are persecuted. The Lipton humans,and altering humans are abusing non human animals.There tender mercies are cruel.
