Fisher Price being an American company?
There are dozens of similar articles from around the world. Take your pick. Spare us the "biased source" argument.
What are you on about? I was referring to there being dozens of similar articles about the Chinese company adding lead paint. I wasn't saying there were only a dozen articles about recalled Chinese products.
If China would only agree to take a closer look at some of the things it exports, this could all be cleared up. Considering your government recently executed the former head of your FDA for exporting tainted products (among other things) this would seem like a logical next step.
As the UK has now pointed out a number of times - these manufacturers are Western-based companies, rather than Chinese ones. If the US government wishes to ensure that products produced by Western companies is up to scratch, they should introduce legislation to do so domestically.
China already is. Read the other articles and news updates on that site.
So technically, this thread may have served its purpose.
NZ is not only concerned over the quality of Chinese exports, but has heard about the apparent 'slave labour' that is going on over there (which would be illegal in NZ and Australia) and is encouraging its citizens to use locally made products.
I would also like to point out that China has done everything it can to ensure quality control over the past few weeks.
France is hopeful that China will place tighter control on its industry to prevent these events happening again.
