Keep in mind this is about 3* the number of people who died from cyanide-laced tylenol.

Lead-paint in your children's toys, rat-poison in your dog's food, and now contaminants in your parent's blood thinners.

At some point there has to be a tipping point. Paying low-low prices at Shitbag-Mart shouldn't be worth this, IMO.

BTW WALMART is the least of your concerns when it comes to Chinese goods, duechebag. Do your research.

I agree with your overall concern though. We let China f** us in the rear on a daily basis. Nixon should have been hung as a traitor for "opening China". What a complete snowjob that was.

When you let the market drive toward the lowest cost, there needs a vigorous oversight. The Republican notion of letting businesses provide that oversight instead of a vigilant FDA leads to this not only for Chinese imports but for shady US Pharmaceutical practices and higher medical bills for use of high price drugs that are often more dangerous than generics of the tried and true nature.

I wonder how much not having their trade status reviewed every year factors in to this sort of thing. The U.S.-China Relations Act changed the rules a bit in how China deals with us. They are far less vulnerable to changes in policy because of it.
