From: Director of Legal ServicesTo: Crisis Management Team

Given the absence of information regarding the possible outbreak of the food poisoning, we would encourage extreme caution when communicating with the publics. Based on the informaiton we have so far, it seems like we have an isolated case of 4 people affected after eating in Beijing, but we are quite sure that we are related to the ongoing food crisis in the city of Nanjing.

We would like to remind you that should avoid any lawsuits and recommend that the company does not acknowledge any responsibility in the outbreak. If the investigation that our Operations Team is conducting confirms that the outbreak was caused by one of our suppliers, all the responsibility would fall on their back. We should therefore be extremely careful in accepting any guilt or in apologizing.
