Made In China, the New Warning Label?

At the BBC News, there is a list of known Chinese product that have caused problems and, the worst, deaths:  

Chinese Product Scares:
Pet food – tainted with chemical melamine
Toothpaste – tainted with chemical diethylene glycol and bacteria
Farmed fish – traces of banned drugs and pesticides found
Tyres – fault may cause blow-outs
Toys – contain lead or pose choking hazard
Children’s jewellery – contains lead
Ceramic heaters – pose fire safety risk
Source: BBC News

As far as I know, these items are the tip of the iceberg which made public in the western world.   However, in Asia and other part of the world, China products, especially food products, have long been well-known for unsafe, counterfeited items and harmful chemical contaminated items including Chinese herbs with dangerous heavy metals and counterfeited drugs, which have caused many unreported deaths and lasting harms among children in developing countries.   Many of those incidents are not yet to make public or less known to the public, so it won’t be a surprise if more and more unsafe items surface later on.   I just hope all of you to be careful purchasing Chinese goods.   I, certainly, don’t mean to boycott all Chinese goods, but be cautious when you buy Chinese food, Chinese drugs, any Chinese products that can be absorbed into your body, and Chinese made tires and children toys.  Simply, ask a Chinese, and you will learn that many food products even Chinese dare not to eat them (so they export oversea).

I think Chinese government should do everything it can to make sure its goods/products are safe before the print of "Made in China" becomes THE warning label.

Btw, better be safe than …(you know)

    呵呵,Kai,我更新并不是很频繁的, 有感想的时候就想记下而已。我的脑袋地球一天是转18小时不停的,最近在我们花园拍了很多片片,还没上哪~~ 哈哈,我还是偷懒了!

     但是不吃Made in China的食物,我们是会饿死的~~~5555。在美国澳洲欧洲本土制造的东西在又这么贵 所谓林子大了什么鸟都有,主要是中国以外的国家选中国制造的商品要把好入口质控这一关吧。 因为毫无疑问,现在中国正供应着全世界大国们的主要日用品来源,从国内来价廉物美的好东东还是有的,比如正规厂家生产的衣物。Made in China充斥世界,作为中国人的我们真是又喜又忧啊,毕竟用的是中国的资源。

    As a Chinese I only can say sorry and I hope Chinese government can do better.
    your blog remind me of a saying "Bad news travels fast."
    At the same time,I feel ashamed for those counterfeiters.

    登山是項考驗  考驗著精神與體力    我不是很喜歡登山

    不知道什麼時候  喜歡上藍天白雲與青翠的高山~
    不喜歡登山也變的喜歡了~~在峰頂上看著 千變萬化的山
    在樹林裡看著 雲霧飄渺 ~~每一次豋山都考驗著我~
    每一次登頂都再一次的撼動著我~感動我 ~
