Sorry meat lovers, no veal in mars bars afterall

Likely due to pressure from this blog (ok, maybe not this blog), Masterfoods, the company who makes Mars bars, Snickers bars, M&Ms and Twix has backed off their plans to add rennet (an enzyme from a calf's stomach) to their products.

Masterfoods came out today and stated it became, "very clear, very quickly" that they had made a mistake.

Gee, ya think alienating vegetarians, Hindus, Muslims and Jews in one fell swoop might be bad for public relations?

I wonder if anyone got fired.
