CASPIAN: Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering

Current Protests

**CASPIAN launches worldwide boycott of Gillette**
***********************************************************************

RFID tags in Gillette product packaging have been used with hidden shelf cameras to snap photos of unsuspecting customers. Since Gillette has not responded adequately or truthfully to consumer concerns, we are advising consumers to avoid all Gillette products, including shaving items, Duracell batteries, Braun appliances, and Oral B products until further notice.
