Why am I writing about this topic when I am not usually bothered by any headlines? Furthermore this piece of scandal is a hot topic and available with just a click and the story and latest update reported by all media worldwide. Who would care for my two pennies worth of thoughts? But all the same, I am posting it anyway. Although I live buried in my own little world, minding my own business, this one piece of very sad news is affecting the whole world from what is supposedly a product of 100% Pure New Zealand. It is a costly mistake that hugely affected me and New Zealand in particular as well as the world at large.
Honestly, I am at a loss for words what to write on this issue other than echo ‘sorry’. I have nothing to do with Fonterra and neither am I related to its CEO or any employees other than both stepping on a common ground, on the same soil of a 100% Pure New Zealand. I feel really sorry their mistake had ruined a 100% Pure New Zealand image, sorry to all parents for the big scare, anxiety and stress, sorry to the New Zealand economy and our weakening dollar. This is a BIG mistake, so costly just because someone did not do it right first time !
So in a nutshell, the purpose of this post is just a 100% pure and humble apology from a citizen of a 100% pure New Zealand. If any of you are in any way affected by this scare, especially all mothers with infants, my thoughts and understanding is with you. As a mother, I know how you feel and I know of all the stress and anxiety that go with it.
