In a shocking decision delivered Feb 28th, President Obama's Security and Exchange Commission ruled that PepsiCo's use of aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor enhancers falls under "ordinary business operations."Sounds horrible doesn't it? Well, as this is Bizarro World, things aren't quite what they may first appear as reported among the fruits and nuts:
While fetal components are currently not in the final product, there is growing concern among consumers that it could happen in the near future. With the explosion of health foods on the market, there is nothing to stop companies from using fetal remains as protein ingredients.In other words, obviously no one is experimenting with fetal tissue as a flavor additive. All the same, since there are no rules preventing it, it is quite possible that it could happen. After all, who wants to finish off a nice, fresh Pepsi on a hot summer day, only to discover they've just drunk they're neighbor's aborted fetus? Since there are no rules regarding the use of fetal tissue in foods, even though it isn't happening, it could.
