Harry Potter and the Tainted Chocolate

It is the choices we make, says Dumbledore.  Well, Warner Brothers, the company responsible for not just the movies by the merchandizing of the Harry Potter stuff, is apparently run by Potter-ites

The Harry Potter Alliance noted that the chocolate used in the various HP products (chocolate frogs, etc) was from places where children were engaged in slave labor.  Due to a lobbying effort by the HPA, Warner Brothers is changing its chocolate providers.  This entire story is news to me, but it seems like WB moved pretty quickly once they were lobbied, compared to the average corporation. 

Sure, they should have been avoiding such companies in their supply chain before now, but changing now is better than not.
