Comment on About The Gandour Tarboosh Controversial Story by Maya

Blog Baladi Comments - Wed, 2014-04-09 15:19

I rarely comment, almost never. But here is the deal:

1- I know the person with whom it happened, it really did (I am not defending because I know him, I am just saying: it did happen)

2- Why blame it on the shop not on Gandour? I don’t get the point. Last I checked we do not have exactly the highest qualifications for safety, hygiene and excellence. And I doubt Gandour (or any other brand whatsoever) is certified or can pass the ISO 22000 (food certification) I’m not attacking, I am just stating facts. I grew up eating Tarboush, and won’t stop now probably but yes, it makes me wonder: what if my son got this nail? Or what if I swallowed it? Or what if John did?

3- PS: if “kids” put it in the shop, it makes me wonder what kind of future generation we are raising around this country… there is a HUGE difference between stuffing it with paper like the “good old days” and putting a nail in it… not to mention: IT WOULD SHOW something is wrong!

4- For those saying he shouldn’t have gone public, I ask: what would you have done if it happened to you? Called them and thanked them? Yara, yes. Mistakes happen. But you don’t just turn your back on them!
