Normally I take a more serious tone with world events surrounded by tragedy. Especially when those events include children but would not come up with anything more clever for the title. Here’s the deal. So far 6 children have died from tainted formula with over 6000 effected in China.
While the title of the post may lead you to believe I am about to rant on about the higher need to use breast milk as “Natures” way to feed a baby… I have chosen not to go there. (But it is the better choice. Take it from a man who know it’s healthier, cheap, and makes a better latte then Formula.)
Instead let us focus on how this happened. It started when two farmers who provide fresh milk used to produce the formula tainted the supply back in January. Flash forward to today and the effects include kidney stones, renal failure.. and obviously death in some cases. The only good news is these rat-bastards have been caught and may face the death penalty for what they did.
I say they should be left in a room with the parents of the 6 dead babies families first… but that’s just me.
But I cannot stop there. In response to this crisis, the Chinese FDA equivilant has started to quality check the producers of formula with strict enforcement which only begs the question, “Why the hell were you not doing that before?”
This is not some impoverished community in Africa 2000 miles from the nearest hospital. It’s one of the wealthiest nations in the world…
It just seems to me if we spent a little more time on QA we would spend a little less time in CC (Crisis Control)
