Is Buying from Nestle a Sin for Jews?

By Mayer I. Gruber

Eugene Borowitz, October 5, 1979

The author argues that it is against Jewish law not to boycott companies such as Nestle that promote baby formula to poor women in Third World countries. Even in the United States, it violates Shabbat and Passover to use baby formula.
