For the record, Wendy's wants to make clear that they do not use aborted human fetuses in their food.

Last week, Gawker launched an investigation on companies that may be using aborted fetuses in their food, and Wendy's was listed as a possible offender when their digging didn't evoke a response. Yesterday, their communications director, Kitty Munger, set everyone straight, once and for all:

Max –

We'd like to correct the mention of Wendy's on gawker, relative to the issue of human fetuses.

The answer is absolutely no. Wendy's does not use aborted human fetuses in its food.

If you'd make this change on the site, we'd appreciate it. Any questions, please let me know.

Thank you.


Well, there you have it. Gawker has since updated their list, and you can go back to enjoying your Wendy's with the knowledge that it is human fetus-free.
