PR Department, whom you contacted yesterday via email (7/9/06). Sean's
on the road today but wanted to make sure you got this. Many thanks.

Thanks for your message yesterday, Sunday - July 9 at 1:43 pm:
Can you please tell me whether or not Ben and Jerry use Unilever's
pouter fish ice structuring protein in sorbets, water ice, fruit ice,
frozen desserts, iced smoothies and/or ice cream.? sincerely, Prof. Joe
The short answer is Ben & Jerry's does not use the protein you ask
about in any of our products. The only fish in Ben & Jerry's ice
cream are the smiling little fudgy ones, swimming in the marshmallow and
caramel in our PhishFood ice cream. (You may return to your "major
secret pleasure" of PhishFood consumption with this GMO-free promise
from us.) The news is out: B&J's doesn't use pout!
We've received another message (perhaps from a student of yours?)
quoting your email, stating in the subject/headline "Environmentalists
Ben and Jerry may feed children genetically modified Ice Cream." I've
attached the article in its entirety below - just to confirm that this
information is what you've distributed.
Thank you for giving us a chance to reply to learn the truth - before
disseminating inaccurate information.
From your full-service P.R. Department...

p.s. We appreciate your long-standing commitment to environmental causes
