WalMart sign after the dog food scare

I'm always critical of "custom" signs in the workplace--you know, the ones produced by the staff in a business to address the seemingly pressing needs at the time. They include things like:

  • Out of Order
  • Cash only please, and
  • Out for lunch, back at 1PM

They seem to always be signed by the mysterious "MGMT" character (whom I've never met personally).

Well, this sign actually contained one very important piece of information--a URL! The web page cited is from the FDA's official website and contains information about the FDA's dog food recall. Note the presence of hand-scrawled messages at the bottom of the sign. This is all-too-typical of "custom" signs. The world will never learn!
