If the US boycotted everything made in China, Walmart would have to shut down.

Some 'orrible products coming over from there. (pet food, toothpaste, etc.)
This wee news clip may help explain it. Dan

Zheng Xiaoyu, the first chief of China’s State Food and Drug Administration, was sentenced to death today for taking $850,000 in bribes from eight unnamed drug companies, WSJ.com reports. The sentence comes as China struggles with a series of domestic and international incidents arising from food and medicines — ranging from pet chow to toothpaste to antibiotics.

I'd be interested to know if the same lead based paint is used on China's
toys or if they only use it on what they export.

China ?

first they poison our pets ,
then they poisoned our kids toys
not happy with that they also exported flammable pyjamma's to our kids
and that wasn't enough ..
a consumer watchdogs here reports levels of formaldehyde (900 times a supposed safe limit) , thats right 900 ,in a shipment of chinese made clothing to these parts (just to get under yer skin a little more eh)

add to that their lust for meat and dairy produce which drives local prices way higher and i for one am more than a little peeved at the emerging middle-class china

FUKKEM !

:P

Hmmmm, I am not liking this trend in the western media and commentators. Caveat Emptor yes, lax quality control yes, but I see China knocking and creeping racism as heading towards being interchangable.

I actually spent a day a few weeks ago roaming stores looking for ANYTHING made in Canada. About 5% of what I saw was made anywhere BUT China, and only two items were Canadian. You can play Crokinole, then wipe your ass with Canadian toilet paper.
