    I saw this at McDonalds today, was the recall so bad that he had to kill himself?

    In the article about it on CBC, they said that it's not unusual for disgraced executives in China to suicide. Dunno how true that is; I thought it was more of a Japanese stereotype.

    Now, I wouldn't kill myself, or anyone else, over something like this. But! If I was going to get murderous about it, I think that I'd kill my friend and paint supplier first.

    If I was going to kill anyone at all. Which I wouldn't. Just saying.

    The work/honor mentality in mainland China can be pretty harsh from what I've been told, which is part of the reason my parents got the hell out of there when they could.

    As tragic as this is, you gotta admit the fake story about the hamburger buns is pretty damn funny.

    I would have rather seen him learn from his mistake, and work to improve the QA of his company. That would have been the honorable thing to do.

    yeah, his life was pretty much over, nobody would have trusted him after that even though it wasn't his fault. the "losing face" thing is pretty big in asia.

    Should we be worried about unsafe Transformers products made in China?

    I cringe everytime I see a child play with a knockoff.
