Samia Hussein started this petition to Food and Drug Administration and

General Mills cereals that have marshmallow's contain gelatin. As indicated on their website, "the gelatin in our marshmallow marbits pieces is made from pork collagen. Collagen as an additive is tasteless and clear, and is used in many types of food. Big G cereals that contain marbits include Lucky Charms, Chocolate Lucky Charms, Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankenberry."

This serves as a hinderance to those who wish to eat General Mills cereals but have dietary or religious restrictions. Many Muslim and Jewish people do not eat pork or foods with pork related ingredients; that is over 10 million Muslim and Jewish Americans. There are also about 4% Hindu Americans who do not eat meat or animal-based foods. According to the Washington Post, there are many Americans (about 5%) who identify as either vegetarian or vegan. Of course, there are also those who just don't like to eat pork for other personal reasons. Plant-based or animal-free products have been rapidly gaining popularity in the US.

We are calling on General Mills, Kellogg's, among other food-based organizations to practice inclusion and expand their customer market by removing any and all animal-based ingredients in products that are not identified as animal-based, such as cereals, rice krispy treats, jell-o, etc. without compromising taste or flavor.
