Call for boycott of Gillette products

12 August, 2003

The US consumer group CASPIAN is calling for a boycott of Gillette products. CASPIAN is protesting against the use of Radio Frequency Identifiers (RFIDs) in Gillette products. UK supermarket chain Tesco used RFIDs in Gillette razorblades to test a controversial surveillance system that tracks and photographs customers.

In EDRI-gram number 14 the test and similar theft detection and theft prediction systems are discussed and explained (see link below).
