The company said the demand for the product has been declining due to lawsuits over its safety. The powder is part of the company's coronavirus-related cuts.
My understanding is that it's not a government thing but a corporate decision. Basically they got sued about talcum powder and decided to take their ball and go home.Seems strange that they'd still allow it in Europe if it is - with all it's strict health guidelines on products etc...
That would actually make more sense, given there's more evidence for it to pose a risk to everyone. I also respect the story told from Zeke's perspective.What is this country coming to? Certain people react differently to certain ingredients, the frivolous lawsuits in this country are gonna bring down this country, I propose that they stop making crystal light and other diet soft drinks because of a certain ingredient that can cause cancer(sarcasm).
My dad shared your attitude about lawyers. He was sales manager for an agricultural equipment manufacturer. One night we were barbecuing on the patio after dad came home from a particularly bad day dealing with lawyers at work. I’m not sure if it was his martini talking or just the frustration of dealing with some of those in the legal profession but he said “we should hang all the crooked lawyers....the other two we could put up with”. I thought he was kidding but four decades latter, after having dealt with these weasels, I see the wisdom of his statement. Much of my TV comes from broadcast networks. Despite receiving over thirty channels I don’t think there’s a time when there’s not at least one lawyer ad begging for clients in their lawsuit. It’s far past time for tort reform in this Country to reduce the detrimental effects on a Nation that has more than ten times the number of lawyers per capita than any other first world country. Not to mention the pervasive affects having these scavengers of humanity in charge has on our government. Stay padded....you never know when you might be part of a class action lawsuit! I’ll put my soapbox away now.Can't blame 'em. When lawyers smell blood, they go into a frenzy. They'll even eat their own. I wonder what the average lawyer's cut is anymore, anyway? I'm sure it's high, so there's their motivation. Greed.
I neither like nor trust attorneys. Sometimes I swear most of the time they slaughter just because they can...for show and for fun.
