PETA’s latest crusade is aimed at those paragon’s of ultra-conservative, right-wing, free-market capitalists….Ben and Jerry. What did they do wrong? Well, milk does come from cows and, in the eyes of PETA, Ben and Jerry just aren’t towing the ideological line close enough, I suppose. But PETA has a solution!
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow’s milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.
Huh. Let’s set aside the, oh-I-don’t-know, craziness of it all and imagine what kind of manufacturing reconfiguration, workforce retraining and supply chain modifications this would take.
