It's very obvious this overblown media hype of "dangerous" made in China products/food has a strong political backing. The governments of every 1st world country want to paint China into an evil empire and the defacto common enemy. What a better way to divert people's attention to their own problems and stike up patriotism/pretectionism?

In the US, for example, it's especially important to drum up an evil empire out to get the US. It's the proven way of uniting the people that backs the policies of the governmet. The more "fear" the gov is able to drive into the people, the more support they'll gain.

On the flip side, I'm glad they are blowing this way out of proportion (China is not even the worst offender in product safety, not even close). This ought to alarm the Chinese government and companies and "shape up" on a fast and speedy curve. China made products will become better and safer in a much faster rate, which could only be a good thing.

The Western media/governments are unknowningly helping China become even better, even faster. Ultimately China wins, and all consumers around the world wins.

If you have spent any time in China, you would know that virtually no Chinese businessman believes in a win-win situation. If their opponent, or customer, wins, they must in some way lose. It is Chinese mentality.

Only time can tell and only when the Chinese government really puts their mind into it then yes

No, not Chinese. Studied in China, and now work in China for more than a decade.

Pretty much anyone in business in China knows this, native or foreign, though many lesser educated or more nationalistic will not acknowledge it. Professors teaching about Chinese business teach this, if they are any good. I've consulted on a few course outlines for top business schools. Those coaching sales techniques in China regularly spend time on how to overcome this issue with mainland sales people and foreigners visiting to do business.

It is a recognized trait. Do not know why you are so upset by it. It is not necessarily bad, it is a cultural issue, there are many of them with all nationalities.

Do you think this crazy overblown paranoia of the whole world about CHINESE MADE TOYS AND PRODUCTS will affect chinese cars in expanding and marketing and exporting and getting deals/buyers everywhere even in china??:nono: :nono:
When 90% of the goods sold are made in China you are bound to have a higher percentage of defects or quality issues. I think this a US lead conspirancy to discredit China. The lead issue with the toys is just not for toys made in China, I was the quality manager for a major toy manfactuer here in Canada 10 years back and we had the same issues for toys made here that was caught by independant labs sent by Kmart and Target. The ink used to print the boxes of the toys contain the most toxic materials and not in the toy themselves !

There has been many overblown and exaggerated articles in the western media to discredit Chinese product. When the allegations are proven false, the damage has been done and the western media tends to ignore the error. Western media cannot be trusted as they frame their reporting to western audience and ignore the facts.

Example is as below with pajamas sold in NZ. WTF, all clothes are flammable for crying out loud.


Official Says China-Made PJs Safe
By AUDRA ANG 08.30.07, 11:12 PM ET

BEIJING - China welcomed Thursday the results of a New Zealand investigation that found that Chinese-made pajamas met safety standards amid worldwide concern about the quality of its exports.

Alarm over the quality of the clothes was triggered after two children in New Zealand were reportedly injured when their sleep wear caught fire earlier this month.

Last week, New Zealand's Commerce Commission, a consumer watchdog, said "The Warehouse Red Stamp" brand passed flammability tests conducted by an independent lab.

The commission said in its statement that the China-made pajamas were qualified to carry the "low fire danger" label.
