“Routine spraying of pesticide”
The company that just can’t seem to catch a break from all the negative karma that’s looming over its factories, Foxconn, has had another unfortunate incident with a somewhat less tragic outcome this time around.

The company had to shut down its Chennai factory in India after 250 workers ended up in hospital due to pesticide poisoning. The workers apparently experienced giddiness and nausea and the main culprit is “routine spraying of pesticide” last Friday.

Out of 250 workers, 28 are still under observation in hospital and we’re yet to see what Foxconn has to say about this.
