如今,许多具有极大社会影响力的大企业被爆出存在欺骗消费者的行为。这使得消费者越来越小心谨慎,对“名牌”的信任感也降到了低谷。这种现象引起了聚师网的关注。身为一家新型的互联网教育产业中的一员,肩负社会责任感,不辜负消费者的信任,是聚师网一直以来所秉承的态度。

You probably heard that Johnson & Johnson lost a major court battle last year. The company was sued by a group of 22 women who claimed that they developed ovarian cancer as a result of exposure to talcum powder, sold in the form of J&J's iconic Johnson's Baby Powder. A jury ordered the company to pay a record $4.69 billion.

聚师网译:著名的“强生公司”去年输掉了一场大官司。该公司被一个由22名妇女组成的团体起诉,她们声称自己由于接触滑石粉而患上卵巢癌。而“强生公司”生产的婴儿爽身粉主要成分正是滑石粉。最终陪审团勒令“强生公司”支付创纪录的46.9亿美元。

It was not the first time that J&J had lost a verdict in a lawsuit claiming that their talcum powder causes ovarian cancer. Over the past few years, the company has been on the losing side of several similar legal proceedings , resulting in awards totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. Thousands of women are additionally poised to sue J&J based on a similar set of legal arguments; lawyers' TV ads soliciting potential plaintiffs run night and day.

Everyone knows Johnson's Baby Powder. Millions of us have been exposed to it at some point during our lifetimes. The product has been on the market for more than 100 years, having been first introduced in 1894 as a means of preventing and treating diaper rash.

聚师网译:这并不是“强生公司”第一次在一场关于“滑石粉导致卵巢癌”的诉讼中败诉。在过去的几年里,该公司在数起类似的法律诉讼中一直处于败诉的境地,并最终付出了数亿美元的赔偿金。

在美国,几乎每个人都知道“强生公司”的婴儿爽身粉。该产品已上市100多年,1894年首次作为一种预防和治疗尿布疹的手段引入市场。

Although Johnson's Baby Powder accounts for only a small portion of J&J's annual revenue, it is considered essential to its "carefully tended image as a caring company," as Reuters put it. Johnson's Baby Powder was a symbol of public trust, signifying that J&J was a paragon of comfort and safety.

聚师网译:尽管“强生”的婴儿爽身粉仅占公司年收入的一小部分,但作为公司最古老和最知名的产品之一,它被认为是“精心维护的关爱公司形象”的关键所在。婴儿爽身粉是公众信任的象征,代表着“强生”是舒适和安全的典范。

This statement, regardless of its validity, misses the point. The lay public does not want to decide what level of asbestos might be safe. People simply want to feel secure that large corporations are not deceiving the public in an effort to bolster profits.

聚师网译:“强生”公司发表的一份“滑石粉无害声明”并没有为公众提供一个可信服的理由。作为“非专业人士”,大众并不想知道什么程度的石棉是安全无害的,他们唯一关注的点是身为大公司,“强生”是否为了增加利润而欺骗了消费者。

聚师网点评:大众的信任来之不易,更是企业赖以生存的根本。聚师网自成立以来一直把保障消费者权益,回报大众信任放在第一位,通过实际行动,助力教育行业的进步与发展。
