PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human MilkYes, it's true, there is a restauranteur who is experimenting with breast milk in *some* recipes in his fashionable restaurant in the Swiss ski resort Winterthur, one of several restaurants in that resort.
VERMONT -- 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.
"PETA's request comes in the wake of news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting breast milk for 75 percent of the cow's milk in the food he serves," the statement says.
PETA officials say a move to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies on factory farms and benefit human health.
Thank God Ben and Jerry have a sense of humour...
