Poisoners to the World

As it turns out... lead painted toys are probably the least harmful part of the problem.

-- MILAN -- In January, Honor International Pharmtech was accused of shipping counterfeit drugs into the United States. Even so, the Chinese chemical company — whose motto is “Thinking Much of Honor” — was openly marketing its products in October to thousands of buyers here at the world’s biggest trade show for pharmaceutical ingredients.

Other Chinese chemical companies made the journey to the annual show as well, including one manufacturer recently accused by American authorities of supplying steroids to illegal underground labs and another whose representative was arrested at the 2006 trade show for patent violations.
And make no mistake here... the Chinese government is up to it's asshole in this criminal conspiracy.
Also attending were two exporters owned by China’s government that had sold poison mislabeled as a drug ingredient, which killed nearly 200 people and injured countless others in Haiti and in Panama.
Close the border to Chinese imports.

Do it now.

UPDATE: Do they make baby pacifiers?

Because that's the only way... they could make this thing any worse than it is.

LAST WORD: Even "made in Japan" ain't what it used to be.
Akafuku has become the latest Japanese food company to be exposed for lying about the contents of its products, tampering with expiration-date labels and recycling ingredients.

Even as details of a government investigation into Akafuku have come out in recent days, executives at a meatpacking company called Meat Hope were arrested for labeling ground pork, chicken and even rabbit as 100 percent beef.

The nearly daily disclosures have shaken Japanese consumers, who have long been willing to pay a premium for Japanese food products that were, or so it was said, safer than imported goods, especially from China.

We can't close the border, but we do need a better labelling law, one requiring that ALL source countries for ingredients be on the label. The current policy of allowing anything where the Canadian "value" is greater than 50% to be labelled as product of Canada is just wrong. Consumers then could make their own choices. I for one would not buy any product from China that might be ingested or used topically.

you mean like breakfast cereal?

did you watch w5 last weekend?

the one cereal company they managed to contact (kelloggs) told them there was no way to determine how much, or how many chinese ingredients were in their product.

it's frightening.

The government's first priority is to protect Canada and Canadians - No Sales should be allowed in Canada if the seller can't tell us what exactly it is.
