Nestle - Baby Formula Boycott

IBAN the International Baby Food Action Network is boycotting Nestle for alleged violations of sales practices in the sale of their baby food products to third world countries. Nestle is accused of donating baby food formula to poor mothers who can not breast feed or unable to purchase the formula, and when their infants are hooked on the formula, Nestle then requires the mother to purchase the formula.

I know Nestle is in the business to make money, but if the allegations are true there is something unethical about this. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Nestle could donate the formula as a gesture to humanity and if they really needed a financial break, they could then use it as a tax break.

Also the company needs to combat this negative publicity before other organizations decide to boycott other Nestle products.
