    Default Apple's Medical Experts Say Death at Pegatron Factory Wasn't Due to Working Conditions


    After the death of a 15-year-old Pegatron worker who falsified documents related to his age, Apple dispatched its own medical experts to the factory in question to conduct an investigation. The Cupertino California company came to the conclusion that the boy’s death was not related to working conditions. The results of the investigation were provided by Apple in a statement to Reuters recently. The medical expert found that the boy died of pneumonia and there was nothing in the factory that would have caused the illness. Apple said the following in a statement:

    Last month we sent independent medical experts from the U.S. and China to conduct an investigation of the factory. While they have found no evidence of any link to working conditions there, we realize that is of little comfort to the families who have lost their loved ones.
    The statement didn’t make any mention of what are alleged to have been “several” more employee deaths. For those of you who didn’t know, it’s been said that “at least five” workers employed at mainland Chinese factories owned by Pegatron have died in recent months. Apple instead only commented on the death of the 15-year-old Shi Shaokun, who was hired at a Pegatron plant after providing the employer with identification for his 21-year-old cousin. The company said the following regarding the matter:

    Apple has a long-standing commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for every worker in our supply chain, and we have a team working with Pegatron at their facility to ensure that conditions meet our high standards.
    Pegatron also seems to have issued its own statement on the incident stating that its separate investigation also concluded that the boy’s death was not related to workplace conditions. China Labor Watch, however, claims that the underage employee underwent a physical assessment on September 4, which showed he was in good health but ended up dying in October.

    As for the other deaths which were cited in reports earlier this week, Pegatron told Reuters that there were three others that occurred in March and April of this year. They were also said to have been caused by medical conditions unrelated to factory work.

    So the Cupertino California company came to that conclusion.....but what did Apple's medical experts conclude?

    Their independent so Apple can pay them to shut up and say what they are told to say. Apple just refuses to accept responsibility for issues that continue to tarnish its name.
