Tell the makers of M&M's to stop killing mice!

Please sign and send this petition to Mars, the makers of M&M's their testing on animals! :-\

wow, what a bunch of jerks.

"mice were fed a candy ingredient and forced to swim in a pool of paint. The mice had to find a platform to try to avoid drowning, only to be killed and dissected later."

So this proves what?

shesh, what crap! i signed this.

i don't understand...if the ingredient is "questionable" enough that they feel they have to do TESTS that they aren't required to do to "test" it... why they hell do they think it is a good idea to put it in food for people?

Thanks for the link, Dave. I signed and sent it to my family (who is probably tired of my animal petition emails, hee hee). Those tests are disgusting and it's probably good that I now have a good reason to not eat M&M's. ;D

WTF? It sounds like the next variety of M&M is going to contain mice! well thanks for posting this, knowing this will keep me from eating any of this crap

Thanks, Dave - I signed it.  I had no idea candy makers did this, even though I consider myself pretty well informed about such things.  Just when you think you've heard it all....I guess nothing should surprise me after the POM Wonderful debacle.

Dave:  thanks for bringing this to my attention.  It's just awful.

This is exactly what I thought when I read it. A pool of paint?
Poor little mice.  :'(
Oh, I'm just waiting for Brain to take over the world. (Animaniacs fans know what I'm talking about.)

I think so, Feelinsoreal, but if they called them "sad meals" no one would buy them. *NARF!*

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I'm sad that I won't be eating Snickers bars again anytime soon, but much more sad for the mice and rats being tested on.

So true. 
And M&M's were one of the few chocolate candies I could tolerate anymore.  :'(

I can't believe they made mice swim in a pool of paint..... It's sickening.  :'(

Don't animals handle chocolate differently than humans, anyway? What exactly do these tests achieve? Jeez. Signed and sent to friends and family.

I sent it to my sister that's a peanut butter M&M's fanatic and she was like I read the first few lines and then deleted it.  I asked her if it changed her mind at all about eating them and the answer I got was NO!
