Made in China

It's happened again. Fisher Price is recalling one million toys because they contain lead paint. The toys are manufactured in China. No surprise here.

Recently there have been recalls from everything from toothpaste to seafood, all processed in China. As the world has discovered, a totalitarian regime can produce cheap goods for mass consumption.

We are paying for this so-called luxury with our health and our safety. So are our children.

We have posted a complete list of the toy recall and other recalls on our web site under the heading: Made in china, Recalled in America. It'd be a good idea to check this list before you buy, and an even better idea to carefully read the labels on the products you do buy.

Our government is either unable or unwilling to stop this. The only defense we have is as consumers, whose judgment with our wallets will drive the solution to this growing problem.
