PepsiCo on fetal cell research -- deny, deny, denyCharlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 3/21/2012 3:30:00 AM

PepsiCo is denying the fact that is uses aborted baby cells to test flavor enhancers by rejecting claims that it has a contract with any company that does such research.

PepsiCo is telling concerned customers and pro-life advocates that it does not use cells from fetal kidney tissue for artificial flavor enhancers. Children of God for Life and OneNewsNow, however, are pointing to evidence that shows otherwise.

Debi Vinnedge heads the pro-life ministry and broke the story about an e-mail in which PepsiCo denies its involvement in the practice, despite the evidence.

"People are scrambling at Pepsi. I don't know who they have in their public relations department that's handling these kinds of things, but it looks like they're in panic mode because everything they're saying can be refuted," she asserts.
