A pro-life leader has won a victory in her efforts to convince soft-drink manufacturer PepsiCo to stop the use of aborted fetal cells in its research for enhancing the flavors of its products. Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life (COGFL), announced that in late April she had received a letter from Paul Boykas, PepsiCo’s vice president for Global Public Policy, confirming that the company will not allow the use of HEK-293 — a cell line derived from human embryonic kidney — in its partnership with Senomyx, the company with which it had inked a four-year, $30 million contract for flavor research.

Drink Up. Good News! PepsiCo says that they will not use aborted fetus parts in their products any longer!!!

from above:

she had received a letter


It's old news I guess. Thought that I would repost, as it's important for people to know that they are Not drinking dead babies when they consume PepsiCo products.

Yay!!!!

They weren't putting the cells in the drink were they ? How were they using the cells in researching flavor enhancement ?

Stem cells aren't babies.

Although I do find it weird that they would use stem cells for flavor enhancement compounds, I'm not entirely surprised.

Not surprised they stopped either, that's really not a headline you want on CNN.

They never did.

It's important to note that, whether or not Senomyx uses HEK 293 cells in its development efforts, neither Pepsi nor any other U.S. company is actually manufacturing or selling any consumable products that contain material from human fetuses, as CBS News reported in an article about the Senomyx/Pepsi controversy in mid-2011:

They were about to put what in their drinks??

Sorry - what?

Does not this qualify as a form of cannibalism?

We eat / drink lots of crazy things, that's why they give them neat labels like E-120 which is a food coloring made out of scale insects..

I'm more surprised about that contract tho.. 30 million just to mix some drinks? Count me in

That's what I want to know, have I drunk human cells lately ? If so a lawsuit is in need.. But forget taking Pepsi to court.


P.S Pepsi has said they will stop using human cells in their research and products twice before this time. 3rd time lucky ? Unlikely.

It's old(er) news. But instead of letting it fade away, I thought that it was important enough to post today. It seems that some have not heard of this before.

Yet another reason to stick with Coke.
Imitators use babies to create the flavor.
