We show that any measure on ℝn possessing the Lee-Yang property retains that property when multiplied by a ferromagnetic pair interaction. Newman's Lee-Yang theorem for one-component ferromagnets with general single-spin measure is an immediate consequence. We also prove an analogous result for two-component ferromagnets. For N-component ferromagnets (N ≧ 3), we prove a Lee-Yang theorem when the interaction is sufficiently anisotropic.
