Foxconn (Accidentally) Poisons 250 Workers

The Foxconn stories keep dragging on. Over at their India factory, 250 workers were poisoned by pesticide spray, resulting in them ending up in hospital due to "sensations of giddiness and nausea".

It could've been a lot worse, yes, but work at the factory ceased on Monday after the event happened the previous Friday. It's not expected the production line will pick up until next week. According to reports, the 250 workers make up 50 per cent of that particular factory's staff, so it's much smaller than the over-cramped Shenzhen plant which has been under public scrutiny this year due to the suicides.
