The Apple factory in India was subjected to supervision after cases...

The Apple Group announced, on Wednesday, that it had put an Indian factory belonging to its main provider in a trial phase, after a series of food poisoning cases, and demonstrations condemning the working conditions at the site.
About 250 women working at an iPhone manufacturing site belonging to the giant Taiwanese group Foxconn in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, fell ill with food poisoning in December, forcing 159 of them to be hospitalized.
This resulted in demonstrations denouncing the living conditions in the residences of the factory in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, which has been closed since 18 December.
Apple said it had put the factory in a beta phase, noting that it was working with the provider to adopt a quick “chain of corrective measures.”
More than 17,000 people work in this factory, and iPhones are manufactured for the Indian market and for export, in addition to accessories.
Foxconn, a contractor with Apple, said it was “really sorry for the problem our employees are facing,” stressing that it was taking “immediate measures to improve the situation of facilities and services” in its dormitories.
The Taiwanese group pointed out that employees will continue to receive their salaries, pending the completion of these improvements.
Apple has long faced criticism about the way it deals with employees working in the factories of its contracting companies in China, especially after a wave of suicides of workers at the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen in 2010. (AFP)
