EXTERNAL ROADBLOCKS (contd.)SAFETY IS A Remaking 'Made in China' (August 2012)


Published on

EXTERNAL ROADBLOCKS (contd.)SAFETY IS A KEY CONCERNWhile perceptions of Chinese-made goods as poor quality have persisted fordecades, questions about their safety have only built in recent years, bothdomestically and internationally.Large-scale recalls have made headlines worldwide. Mattel recalled 9 million toys,including Barbie and Polly Pocket dolls, in 2007 due to lead paint and magnets thatposed choking hazards; countries around the world banned Chinese milk productsafter recalls by several Chinese dairy companies in 2008; 54 high-speed trains,meant to symbolize Chinas sweeping modernization push, were recalled last year. I know not all Chinese products are bad, but in general I think China has very poor quality regulatory standards for products. Im not keen to try Chinese products until this improves.” —Male, U.K., JWT SONAR™ Image credit: Mattel
