They are everywhere, in the form of food and daily life products… Running away from Chinese made products may be a bit difficult but not impossible since you can be certain that at least a few things around you must have the label “Made In China”.
1 main reason which justifies the existence of these products on such a large scale:
Cheap labour + markets with low standards = low quality products.
The different cases registered…
After the chinese milk scandal, a whole range of products from china is being examined to verify if they contain toxic products that can be harmful to humans, wait wait wait!
March, 2007,Up to 85000 cats and dogs in the US died in early 2007 after eating pet food contaminated by melamine.
February, 2007, Lipsticks Containing Sudan Red
May, 2007, Poisonous Toothpaste and Cough Syrup in Panama.
May, 2007, Poisonous Textiles
August, 2007, Poisonous Toys
November, 2006, Poisonous Eggs Containing “Sudan”[source]
These are only a few of the cases registered in 2007, and for the past weeks, lots of items have been removed from the world wide markets, including the “White Rabbit” candy known as “Bonbon Lapin”!
Low Quality Products
Everything can be made in China from cakes to euh, space shuttles. For those who dont know, Nokia with “Made By Nokia” label are actually made in China by Nokia itself! [Source] They even clone everything up to iPhones!
It seems that China is even making doctors these days… and just to point out – Not all the universities in China are registered by the Medical Council (Mauritius)… Still there were some agencies sending Mauritian students over there!!!
I think that every country will now carry out a deep analysis for all products, especially if they are from China. Even YOU will now think twice before buying something with the Made In China label.
Say NO to Made In China!
Updated: To be more precise… Say NO to Low Quality Stuff Made In China! lol !
