- 27,000 crayon and paint sets recalled
- Woman claims made-in-China flip-flops injured feet
- Maggot-filled chocolates, anyone?
Mattel has only itself to blame for a huge toy recall that has stoked global alarm about Chinese-made goods, state media said on Thursday, charging that a slew of foreign safety scares had exposed a protectionist agenda.You see?
"If it comes down to blame, then it all lies with the U.S. side," the paper said of the Mattel magnet recall, noting that the problem was a design defect. "The Chinese manufacturer only produced according to those specifications."Yes, indeed -- it's all our fault.
Boycott Chinese products. Check labels. Hit'em in the pocketbooks, won't you?
