Ocean Spray

I'm always shocked when I find out one more company whose products I use contribute to animal suffering. My question is, can we be fairly certain that when a company says it's going to stop animal testing that it actually does? I'm guessing since PETA is so involved that they have good information on this? I'm just thinking it's easy for a company to say they're going to stop, especially if they think they are going to get bad press. Just curious. My skeptical nature getting the better of me. Some reassurance would be nice!

i was just thinking the same thing



why would they need to do animal testing for juice anyway. that's just silly

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

I don't understand what kind of testing on animals a juice company could possibly feel they need to do Sometimes I read things that really make my head spin.
