Default EOM4 - Task 3 - Table Interpretation

I'm having some trouble deciding how to interpret the Quickwich valuation table in Task 3. At first I thought the base scenario was pre-tainted food and pre-marketing boost. I was going to argue that stores closed but COGS appears to rise way too much for that. So then I started thinking the base scenario was post-tainted food but obviously still pre-marketing boost. Then the drop in wages, equipment, and supplies doesn't make sense.

Simply put: does the base scenario already include the food being tainted, or no?

The base scenario represents the expected value of the company's performance assuming that all goes according to plan. Shocks to the baseline scenario represent deviations to that plan.

ex: You're feeling good and plan to enjoy a walk in the park tomorrow. If you get sick or win the lottery between now and then, your plan would likely be impacted.
