"In a well coordinated action during the second week of November, 263 jars of Kiwi mink oil sold in chain drug and big box stores were tampered with across the United States. Fortunately for us, Kiwi does not use tamper proof seals. Each jar was opened and a small amount of cyanic acid added. They were then placed back on the shelves in Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, and other stores.
Mink oil is a leather care byproduct of one of the most cruel industries on this planet. Mink on fur farms are crowded often six to a cage for life awaiting a violent death in the pelting season, which comes in one of two ways, neck breaking or gassing with a lethal dose of carbon monoxide.
Those who use this product will not die like the animals caged on fur farms. The cyanic acid will cause a severe burn and eat through the leather products it is applied to.
Kiwi's involvement with the fur trade will no longer be tolerated."
