Whole Foods Sued for Firing Whistle-Blower Amid Sewage Concerns
If you were shopping at the Miami Beach Whole Foods on Nov. 1, 2009, you might have been subjected to the powerful stench of a raw sewage leak. Management tried to ignore the problem and covered the smell with air freshener, but an unnamed employee dubbed "Janet" informed corporate management of the poop leak cover-up. She ended up getting fired. Now, the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration is suing the chain for firing the employee.
