I got an e-mail urging a boycott of Hershey's candy because it was shutting its U.S. operations and moving to Mexico. Is that true?

Hershey's has closed several U.S. plants and announced it would lay off about 1,500 U.S. workers by 2009. It's also building a factory in Monterrey, Mexico, and setting up a joint production venture in China with a South Korean company. But the company says it will still have more than 10,000 U.S. workers and will continue to make such candy as Hershey's Kisses and Hershey's Milk Chocolate in central Pennsylvania.

To submit a question, e-mail or call 727 893-8179, toll-free, 1-800-333-7505, ext. 8179.
