I remember buying candy cigarettes at a mall a while back and out of curiosity checked the label and yep... Beef Gelatin... I still have the full box sitting on my shelf as a reminder to ALWAYS check labels before I buy.

It's a disgusting practice, the meat industry is beyond abhorrent and non-redeemable as they knowingly place products made from boiling animal byproducts in extreme heat to feed to consumers. I don't like to think of myself as superior to a dog or cat because I'm not but the same thing is done for pets as well so everything is being affected by it if they live in a domestic situation.

It makes me so angry, sorry. These animals go through more pain than a cancer patient and it's deemed as normal.

Sorry for getting overzealous but it hit's me hard, I'm literally crying just thinking about it. Sorry for getting off topic but yeah, it's in gummies, sour cream, hard candies, marshmallows, etc from what I've seen from fanatically checking labels.

In India there's a strict regulation that any edible product have a clearly visible circular dot within a square box, if the color of the logo is green it means that the product is free of gelatin/animal by-products and if found to be in violation by testing, the consumer can sue the company hollow. If the logo is maroon color it means that vegetarians/vegans should avoid it completely. This rule applies to all companies/fast food joints excluding pharma where its obligatory, still I've seen even pharma companies including the green logo wherever possible (to please the almost 40% vegetarian population).

McDonalds in India use the respective logos on each and every one of their products including their soft-serves/brownies/mayo sauce which are certified as gelatin/egg-free. During the couple of times they served meat products to the customers by mistake (despite having separate kitchens), the customers easily spotted the mistake & upon complaining McDonalds were fined about 500$ and threatened with closure by the authorities if they repeated the mistake.

The logo concept should be likewise demanded in U.S and other countries, if the government is there to look after the people why not take care of the sentiments of vegans & vegetarians?

The earth has enough resources for everyones need but not their greed.
