100% Lead Free

Filed under: China,Ramblings — iknowkeith @ 9:11 pm

I came across this logo on a website selling toys. Amazing how this is becoming part of the advertising hook…

First of all, I want to say that this is a sad state of affairs that advertisers are using “not made in China” as a selling point. I say it is sad because that means most stuff is still made in China and we should have all stopped buying that crap months ago. I admit, I do it too. I try to see “made in China” as a warning label but then I look at the price tag and they get me.

Although I can’t make you (or me) stop buying Chinese products; I can guarantee that the contents of this blog were not made from Chinese products and is 100% lead free. I don’t even speak Chinese.

  1. Poison from China comes from the Chinese communist regime only. If the Chinese people get rid of the Ccp then all will be well with Chinese exports!!

  2. While you are at it, please mention tainted Tylenol (ironically, J&J stock rose after it was disclosed), roughly 20+ deaths; E-Coli spinach, 50+ dead; pesticide coke (Coca-Cola that is) in India, they are Indians, so I guess they didn’t bother with a count; and foot and mouth chicken.

    And those were just the serious ones. If we include things like the headless chicken with only wings, legs and breasts at KFC, 100% beef burgers now at McDonald’s (makes one wonder what they used before) and of course, the Wendy’s finger, which though disapproved, certainly got people up in a frenzy. And who could forget those wholesome GMO’s, banned in China but legal in the US.

    Though it probably should be, lead paint isn’t illegal in China, nor in many other countries around the world, nor the US prior to the late 1970’s.

    And let’s talk quality, China produced what, 2.5 million lead paint toys? Mattel recalled 50 million last year, much of which aren’t China’s fault. Small magnets that could be swallowed by kids are design flaws. Crap made to specs by producers are still crap. No wonder Mattel apologized in a hurry after China complained.

    On a larger scale, the US imported 220 billion toys from China last year alone. That is absolute quantity, not dollar value. 2.5 million at fault out of 220 billion is quality US makers NEVER achieved.
