Innovations and inventions has become part of corporations in order to get an edge in a competitive market with little or no regard to consumer safety, product quality and standards.
The safety concerns exhibited by FeedTech Corp in the M.T Anderson Feed text is a gross example. Although the text is base on imaginary world but the reality is that consumers face such safety concerns in their everyday transactions. The claims of safety and product standards could be noted from the words of Violet. She said
“I lost a year. During the seizure. I can’t remember anything from the year before I got the feed”
Another point of claim is according to Violet’s dad “We Americans” he said, “are interested only in the consumption of our products. We have no interest in in how they were produced, or what happens to them.”
Finally the response received from FeedTech after the petition threw me away when Nina said, “I’m here to inform you that FeedTech Corp has decided to turn down your petition for complimentary feed repair and/or replacement.”
I intend looking at consumer safety and product standards by corporations. Are corporations actually serious about the safety of those that maintains their being into business and why should Violet left to suffer? What happen to those without the feed? And what will happen if the feed is removed once fixed? These are some of the unanswered questions, I intend to focus on.
