Caveat Emptor
5/22/2010 - Jackie Reed

Yes, Let the buyer beware is the English translation of the Latin term. If you’re contemplating buying jewelry for your kids or grandkids you should check out this video first. Jewelry from two lines being sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide, including bracelets and necklaces branded by Miley Cyrus, contains high levels of the toxic metal cadmium, according to a recent investigation. 

I recently answered the phone and found myself on the other end of a phone survey which turned out to be Walmart  testing community attitudes for their bringing in a superstore. For more on the retail giant you might find a visit  to Walmartwatch worthwhile.  If you get a similar survey call you’ll be armed with information on the price we pay for low prices.

I have never been to a WalMart and that is a conscious decision on my part. Mostly it has been one based on my support of small business which has been hurt in many parts of the country because of their practices both as a customer and a supplier. The company's treatment of women as executives has been written about in depth and how their is a major pending litigation. The site was very enlightening. But the last straw may be the fact that I believe the goods that are sold by this Giant are not safe and the savings many see are coming at the cost of their health.
