Responding to a recent string of press reports about tainted toothpaste and dog food made in China, a health food company says it will begin marketing itself as “China free.” China is also the source of much of the lead-based paint on children’s toys, despite all the research showing how deadly this combination is. Since the Chinese government apparemtly cares so little for human (and animal) life and won’t willingly do the right thing, I’m glad the market is stepping in. I’d like to see a national boycott of goods made in China until conditions and standards improve. If it worked in South Africa, why not there?
Mismade in China
