Why Is China Shipping Poisonous Dog Food, Baby Food, Tooth Paste, and Lead Paint Toys to the US?

It seems lately that China with its first-tier trading partner status with the United States is getting away with murder, literally. We all know that there have been issues with imported Chinese products. Not long ago, it was found that drywall that was used to build all the new homes during the last housing boom at very serious chemical coatings on them, they ended up giving the residents of these homes nosebleeds, and causing them serious diseases; the drywall was manufactured and came from China.

Also, we all remember the poisonous dog food that killed pets, and we recall the lead point paint on toys a couple of Christmas’ ago. Then there was the issue with the poisonous toothpaste, and a horrific problem with baby food with toxic chemicals in it. Some late night talk show host made light of this subject and said that China was trying to get rid of all the Americans so they could just come and move in. Obviously, no one is that much of a conspiracy theorist to believe that, but something must be done.

Let’s face it, if it were any other nation on this planet all trade would have been cut off, even if it were just one of those issues, and yet, we see this repeat of offenses. Each time our consumer protection divisions demands that China upgraded standards and regulations; the Chinese simply pick a culprit to blame it on and then they execute them, with a very quick trial. We have no way to talk to the person to see if they were actually involved at all, and that really doesn’t solve the problem either.

The people of the United States do not want to see people in China executed, we want the poisonous products to stop. Some consumer rights groups in the United States are very upset and feel that China has taken advantage of the United States middle class consumer’s welcome mat. If something doesn’t change in China, one day the US consumer will boycott all Chinese products. It would be much better if China took care of this problem themselves than let this problem go, and face that type of consequence.

As the economic crisis continued globally, Chinese exports were down 35%, most of that was because the US consumers stopped buying. Now that we are on a rebound and will soon hit a new upturn in the business cycle, China needs to upgrade its manufacturing processes, increase its regulations, and stop sending poisoned products. If they fail to do this, they will pay in the end, and all the nations of the world will refuse their products.

Indeed, I personally cannot think of a worst economic disaster for China than that. I sure hope they’re listening. Not long ago, I mentioned this to Guang Wu, the author of a new book; “China: Has the Last Opportunity Passed by!?” and he said that China was fixing these issues, but that there is so much more to it than what I have outlined here. So, please consider all this.
