    Just received the same message. I wonder how long it took their PR people to "craft" it and then get approval from upper management?

    PC BS aside, does reliable and responsible suppliers mean finned sharks aren't dumped in the ocean, the whole shark is used?

    I went to an Asian wedding a few years back and they served Shark Fin soup, it was pretty good. One thing though, it had absolutely no shark parts what-so-ever as an ingredient.

    then it wasn't shark-fin soup

    they use the fins' cartilage to give the soup its consistency (its' suspended...
    or disolved... forget which.. .in the liquid)

    You have a point there, it wasn't shark fin soup, but that's what they called it on the menu. I guess it satisfied their tradition.

    As if their nefariously smarmy movies, tentacles in every aspect of American life, and that annoying voiceover announcer of theirs weren't enough!

    cheers
