Stop All Animal Testing at Johnson & Johnson
Urge Johnson & Johnson to do away entirely with animal testing and become a leader in cruelty-free production. Besides their other many products, one of the best known to animal advocates is Splenda, the testing of which caused the torture and deaths of thousands of dogs, monkeys, rabbits and rodents.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries represent a vast corporation with billions in annual revenue. As one of the largest and most important companies in the US, Johnson & Johnson is uniquely situated to lead the way in cruelty-free production methods. Unfortunately, Johnson & Johnson refuses to ban its use of animal testing and asserts that it only tests on animals "when necessary."
When testing Sucralose, better known as the sugar substitute Splenda, Johnson & Johnson found it "necessary" to contract an organization to poison dogs, monkeys, rabbits, and rodents with its product. Over 12,000 animals were killed in the process, all so Johnson & Johnson could market a low-calorie sweetener. The Splenda horror is hardly an isolated incident.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
