Stop Animal Testing at Johnson & Johnson

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 sweetner. The Splenda horror is hardly an isolated incident. We therefore urge Johnson & Johnson to do away entirely with animal testing and become a leader in cruelty-free production.
