Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, has released its statement to the informants through dismissing Chinese worker who had accused it of violations on food safety and police must intervene already.

"Related authorities must take charge as soon as possible and should not allow such actions of revenge to happen with impunity," according to the reports released by XinHua. This was seen on the agency's official blogsite.

According to Xinhua the staff in the southern part of Shenzhen city were dismissed last month after throwing their accusation on Wal-Mart of selling food containing expired meat. And the China has been very strict on their food preparation and other health-related issues since they are promoting safety in all forms all over their country.

"There were workers who got fired for issues on performance and for non-compliance with company policy. They were not dismissed because of speaking to the media," as Vivian Jian emphasized in the email that was released to the press. She was the spokesperson of retailer. The company and the government conducted an investigations on the claims of the staff and did not find anything suspicious about it.

Wal-Mart has been going through public issues on food safety in its operations in China right after DNA of a fox was present in meat that was sold for donkey. There were investigations done which verified the presence of odd component in the meat. Despite all these concerns, the brand seeks for expansion. The company sees no hindrance to their planned growth and continue to strengthen their presence in different parts of the globe. The China community have been very vocal on going against food safety concern and other healthy dangers, which worsened since there were also scrutiny from the government.
