Last week, Wal-Mart was caught selling some regular nasty pork labeled as "organic" pork in some of its stores in China. Funny, right? Just a normal funny nasty pork China Wal-Mart story. Well, hello: it's snowballing out of control!
The CEO of Wal-Mart's entire Chinese operation and its head of human resources have both stepped down—for "personal reasons," of course, yeah right. The real reason is this out of control nasty pork scandal!
Last week, the Bentonville, Ark., company said two Wal-Mart employees were arrested and 35 others were detained in the Chinese metropolis of Chongqing over local-government allegations the retailer fraudulently labeled ordinary pork as a more expensive organic type.
On Wednesday, a Chongqing government spokesman cited a report in the city's official newspaper that said of the 35 held, 25 were still being detained
If only the American government had the same backbone as the Congqing locals, and would step up and "do the right thing" by imprisoning Wal-Mart's executive team in a prison made of nasty rotting pork. Which country is really The Land of the Free??
