PETA Goes After Liz Hurley's Organic TV Dinners

As we’re all vaguely aware,  Elizabeth Hurley has retired to the English countryside to engross herself in her new organic farm. It’s not all for kicks, however, as the actress is focused on making money from the venture through a new line of frozen foods and organic TV dinners. In a recent interview with Red Magazine, she described the pre-packaged dishes as “fabulous versions that are delicious, healthy, not too expensive and very low in fat.”

Oh yea, and there’s meat in them.

So, no surprise this week that PETA has crafted a letter urging Ms. Hurley to lay off the animal products and go vegetarian. Obviously, they’re none too thrilled with the idea of meaty entries, no matter how happy the animals’ lives down on the farm. From the letter,

“Please know that no matter however “lovely” his or her life might have been, no farmed animal – intensively reared or organic – goes willingly or fearlessly to slaughter. In the UK, animal slaughter is poorly regulated and plagued by abuse. Pigs are often insufficiently stunned, and many remain conscious throughout the entire slaughter process. They often wake up while they are “bleeding out” and are still conscious when they are plunged into boiling-hot water.

We urge you to allow the piglets, calves and lambs on your land to live out their natural lives in comfort and safety and join PETA in promoting a healthy vegetarian diet.”

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.

Wicked Good Opportunity

Bloomberg reports that the introduction of “vegan ranges” is at least partially responsible for improving Tesco’s finances.
