Nintendo Investigating Foxconn's Underage Employee Admission

Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturer of a range of consumer electronics (including Apple products, the Wii U, and the systems of Microsoft and Sony) have recently admitted that it employed underage interns (younger than 16) in violation of Chinese law. Now, Nintendo says it is investigating the matter.
"Nintendo is in communication with Foxconn and is investigating the matter," reads a statement at IGN. "We take our responsibilities as a global company very seriously and are committed to an ethical policy on sourcing, manufacture and labor. In order to ensure the continued fulfillment of our social responsibility throughout our supply chain, we established the Nintendo CSR Procurement Guidelines in July 2008. We require that all production partners, including Foxconn, comply with these Guidelines, which are based on relevant laws, international standards and guidelines. If we were to find that any of our production partners did not meet our guidelines, we would require them to modify their practices according to Nintendoís policy."
Where this investigation will lead Nintendo and the Wii U (especially since Foxconn has already admitted it was in violation) is unknown. Foxconn says that it has sent the underage interns back to their schools, so this situation might not affect production of the console.

Was going to put under "gaming news" but I felt it was more appropriate here

The situation has got to be pretty harsh if it breaks China's labouring standards.
