More Mattel recalls information can be found here.
And here's information on the FDA and problems with foodstuffs imported from China. For example:
Eighty percent of U.S. seafood is imported, and China has been a major supplier. In June the FDA issued an import alert for some Chinese seafood. Since January, the FDA has rejected more than 200 Chinese seafood import items, including shrimp, eel, catfish and tilapia, according to agency records. The reasons cited in the rejection notices include the presence of antibiotics, salmonella and pesticides.Yummy.
I love my nieces, but there'll be no more Mattel toys purchased for them until Mattel either quits outsourcing its manufacturing to China or gets control of its outsourced manufacturers. In addition, I'll certainly be careful to find out where the fish I order is coming from. Nothing imported, that's for sure!
(And it's nice to see that I'm not the only one openly boycotting Chinese products!)
