As a mother of two young girls who chew on almost anything they can lay their hands on, I am now very conscious about "Made in China" products that have been declared to be unsafe because of high lead and formalin content. Mattel has recalled some of the accessories for its Barbie dolls. Just recently, somebody said a popular liquid seasoning has been removed from the market. When we were in McDonald's last weekend, I asked the store manager if the ponies that came with their Happy Meals were China-made and she said no. When we got the toys, there in very legible letters was the phrase "Made in China."
This is not to advocate a total ban on everything made in China. I just want to be informed about the products that have been definitely banned, and those that we should be wary about because they are in the process of being investigated for containing life-threatening ingredients.
I try to be conscious about my kids' health. For one week now, I just make them bring water to school -- no juices or chocolait. So far, they're ok. This may take the fun out of being a kid, but hey, I don't want them ending up obese or diabetic at a very young age.
Please list down (with pics if possible) the products that have so far been banned from the shelves for the info of mothers (whether Mac or PC users ) out there.
Kindly move this thread to wherever it is supposed to be if this is not its proper forum.
