NESTLE'S FAILURE TO FULFILL ITS AGREEMENTS
WHEREAS, the Nestle Boycott was called off in 1984 when the Nestle Company agreed to stop the unethical and aggressive promotion of infant formula in the Third World, and
WHEREAS, as part of the Boycott settlement, Nestle agreed in 1984 to follow World Health Organization restrictions on the promotional device of dumping free supplies of infant formula on Third World hospitals, and
WHEREAS, the World Health Assembly, the world's leading body of health authorities, has concluded that the consequences of industry dumping of infant formula supplies on hospitals presents a hazard to infant health and lives and should be stopped, and
WHEREAS, today Nestle is breaking its promises by continuing to dump supplies of formula on hospitals in the Third World, thus violating the 1981 WHO/UNICEF Code, the Agreement it signed in 1984 to end the Boycott, and the 1986 Resolution of the World Health Assembly,
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
Adopted by the American Ethical Union Assembly in Buffalo, New York: 1988.
