India – Apple puts India iPhone plant “on probation” after mass food poisoning

CBS News

Some 250 women working at Foxconn’s iPhone factory in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu were treated for food poisoning this month. One-hundred-fifty-nine were hospitalized.

That prompted demonstrations against living conditions at company hostels that have kept the factory at Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, closed since December 18.

Apple said it has placed the plant “on probation” and is working with the supplier to rapidly implement “a comprehensive set of corrective actions.”
