You may or may not have heard about the news that some Chinese dairies were putting a chemical called “melamine” in milk products – this chemical appeared as a protein, making the milk look nutritious, but actually contaminated the milk, and (very sadly) some babies died from it – with many more ill.
Well now one of the Dairy firms’ chiefs has gone on trial and is awaiting sentencing – but what is also interesting (in an otherwise very said affair) is that the dairy companies have apologised in a New Year’s text, sent to millions of Chinese subscribers, according to BBC News.
Whatever you think about the events that happened, you might surely wonder whether a text message might be the appropriate medium for an apology – but in these tech-times, perhaps that is the most accessible method of delivery a “broadcast apology”?
The BBC News piece is really well written – I’d invite you to check it out here.
