World's Worst Products Awards.

The awards were presented as part of the Consumers International conference being held in Sydney this week, and aim to highlight alleged failings of corporate responsibility and abuse of consumer trust by internationally recognised brands. The conference brought together 220 consumer organizations from 115 countries. Some of the winners of the Worlds Worst Product Award were household names such as Kellogg's, Coca-Cola, Mattel, SLEEPING pills for children, tap water masquerading as mineral water, toys with dangerous levels of lead in their paint and sugar-laden breakfast cereals. Top prize went to a Japanese firm producing a sleeping pill targeted at children. I am surprised some of these products were ever marketed and as for others such as cereal you can not change a tradition of breakfast such as fruit loops.

I think they're a GREAT idea except for the fact that few kids will take pills. how about sleeping pops or sleeping juice? LOVE it!
