I think that you are correct. We need to bring back the "Made in America" standard of products and codes. Now for automobiles???

Forget the toys, I'm concerned about all the other things that are made in China that could be full of poisons. Glad sandwich bags, Hamburger Helper sauces, the christmas lights I just bought at Target with a big "LEAD PAINT" warning on the outside of the box, printing on thousands of cardboard boxes that I touch when shopping and stocking my shelves. I have to wear gloves to shop at Publix and unload my groceries and hang my Christmas lights?
Toys are the tip of the iceberg of the catastrophe that cheap overseas contractors and subcontractors are doing to save pennies.

Well, I'm a public health worker in China and it sounds like some of you will be relieved to know that Chinese infants and children die in record numbers from industrial and product pollution here. Childhood leukemia is the leading cause of death for children and other cancers are right up there.
Foreign buyers push Chinese factories to deliver faster and cheaper. Don't be surprised that quality suffers. Of course the factories should just say "no" but greed seems to be a universal human quality.
