Woolworths These guys are nuts!
Woolworths, as you may know, is involved in some product labelling irregularities, resulting in the recall of 12 ice cream and sorbet products which were not labelled with the necessary peanut allergen warnings. Recall executed, apology issued, and there, one assumes, it rests, right? Not so fast, according to the National Consumer Commission (NCC), whose boy sleuths and girl detectives have discovered that the Dapper One – gasp – is unable to account for exactly how many units were affected. In fact, the answer is quite simple. Simply count the number of lawsuits, or writhing, puffy-featured peanut-allergic ice cream freaks, and Bob’s your uncle.
Comment: Retailers are the big corporates with the largest public interface, by a long margin. They provide a tempting and easy target for all sorts of special interest groups, and the crusading hacks who follow them.
