retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Financial Times reports that Walmart "is facing fresh accusations of selling substandard food products in China just months after a scandal over the mislabeling of products cost its country head his job and damaged the chain’s reputation in a market where food safety is a major concern."

This time, the story says, Dazhou city officials asked the retailer "to stop selling pork ribs sourced from diseased pigs." The request came in January, but only now is being made public; Walmart said it discontinued sale of the pork in question and stopped doing business with that supplier.
