    I understand the safety issue, but this is all covered by insurance, so why not hand out the damaged stuff. You can bet that after the Police chased everyone away and secured the area that they loaded up with what they could take.

      Unfortunatly you can’t just hand out “damaged” goods like that. It becomes a liability issue for the company if someone claims they got sick, swallowed a piece of glass or whatever. Even though they’re covered by insurance. My 1st job when I was 16 was working in fast foot. we had so much left over at close that we’d take some home. One guy would actually take food to the people where he lived who didn’t have much money. Well, the store manager happened to be there one night and told him to stop doing it b/c they could get sued. It’s really sad b/c all my co-worker was trying to do was help out. But i do see the legality of the issue. Especially with it being so easy to sue “Big Business” these days.

    >$3 for a bottle of syrup that will last how long? At least a few months. People must be pretty desperate if they need to steal such a non-essential item.
