Once again on the food thing...

OK, so it was rapidly clarified that Starbucks was only pulling milk at it's outlets in China. Makes me feel a bit better about the whole thing.

A bit.

But still...

American owned company's coffee add-in. American owned company's baby food. American/UK owned company's candy. All being pulled. Not proven to have actually harmed anyone, but I read the fact they are pulling product to mean they have reason to suspect their product sourcing.

I know there's an argument. How could they know, right? But come on now. With China's recent record of consumer health scandals, you think someone might care to check eh?

This on top of the financial crisis leaves me thinking corporate America is indeed morally and ethically bankrupt. Does no one have a conscience any more?

Call to action folks. Know better. Do better. Be informed. Demand a higher standard.
