My other product is IAMS pet food. They contract with a private lab that does cruel animal testing. I WILL NOT support that. I don't boycott too often, but when I do I have a strong conviction about it.
Meh! I'll let them duke it out amongst themselves. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my Knitter's Pride Dreamz needles (and my new yarn just arrived today--hoorah!--but I have to work--Waah!).
