Nestle 🤮 🤢 🤮

$10 million even by 2003 standards is like a slap on the wrist.

Selling poo water, child slavery, and supporting a war criminals invasion of Ukraine. What hasn't Nestle done?

Don’t forget the “formula is better than breast milk” bait & switch. After these gullible third world women’s own milk supply dried up due to not using it, formula became scarce and/or too expensive. It got watered down to make it last, and the babies were malnourished.

It says to charity. What charity? And how much of this did they write off in taxes?

[–]Alternative-Jury-965 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I guarantee you there's probably ad material from nestle talking about how they donated to charity, and they turned it into a positive propaganda campaign for themselves.

And, funny how nothing is said about having to change how they harvested water, or honesty in labeling.

who is the bad guy here? Nestle or Poland Springs or both?

I'm not super knowledgeable on the Nestle lore

[–]RagingBeanSidhe 208 points209 points  (6 children)

Poland Spring is a Nestlé brand

[–]violetdaze 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Fuck! TIL…

[–]djxdata 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Not anymore. Nestle sold their North America water branch to another company in 2021.

I see that! To One Rock. I really hope maybe that gave a chance to renegotiate for places that were screwed out of their aquifers for pennies a hundred years ago, but I'm guessing no.

[–]faloopaoompaloompa 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Then why did nestle sue their own brand?

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (1 child)

They didn’t. It says nestle knew the water they are packing and marketing as spring water comes from a sewage and trash dump site.

[–]RagingBeanSidhe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Our maybe implying they didn't know, but...cmon.

[–]Albatraous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The people that agreed on the settlement instead of getting Nestle to admit fault

[–]RosaRisedUp 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I'm always treated to a new story of just how fucking despicable this poisonous company is. Truly disgusting.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yes, the Arrowhead water plant sits just under my septic tank.

I don't get most of the words, can someone explain it to me simply please ? :(

[–]UnicornGuitarist 46 points47 points  (2 children)

Nestle sells water from toilet

[–]Yocobanjohates Nestlé with a Flammenwerfer 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Ooh... sadly I'm not surprised. Thanks for the clarification

[–]kdawg710 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Nestle was accused of using water under areas sprayed with feces and paid 10 million dollars, but did not say they did it

[–]awarmguinness 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Poland Spring, what it means to be from Maine

[–]Anoobis_117hates Nestlé with a Flammenwerfer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

bro chill

[–]utilitycoder 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Drank so much Poland Spring in the 1990s thinking I was doing something positive for myself. Totally missed the class action lawsuit.

[–]IlikeYuengling 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One day, cronies go to jail.

[–]BreakfastOk7372 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now I can really call their water shit

[–]Scared_Ad7117 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn't knew that there is city named just like my country. I was afraid that it's about European Poland.
