Alarmingly, the National Restaurant Association is recommending the use of glue traps for rodent control in its “ServSafe Program”—a food-service training course. PETA informed program officials of the extreme cruelty and disease risks inherent in glue traps, but to no avail.

Glue traps are some of the cruelest products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Panicked rodents often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggle to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they die from shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss. Death can take more than 24 hours. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada warn against using glue traps because of the disease risks posed by the many pathogens in the waste of ensnared rodents, who eliminate out of stress and fright. This should be a concern for any food business!

Please urge the National Restaurant Association to join the numerous food businesses that have sworn off glue traps.
