It’s another recall, yet again from China

    That was the headline from one of the reporters in the evening news.  Yes, it was a toy recall.  This time for safety reason, because the beads were too small that a young child can swallow.  What the hell does it have to do with China?

    When 95% (or some ridiculously large percentage) of our toys are made in China, of course when problem happens, there is a ridiculously high chance that the
    product is manufactured in China.  Some problems such as this one are not even manufacturing error at all.

    The recent public finger pointing at China is a result of various political engine at work.  Various lobbying group is taking the opportunity to get what they need to get done.  China problem sells paper, design flaw doesn’t.  The media is happy to cooperate.  if a statistical study of percentage of problem cause by the lack of governance and inspection as a result from manufacturing in China, minus those that are designed to be quality controlled in the US, I bet the numbers are not interesting at all.

    As a matter of fact, the recent recalls are examples of consumer consciousness and the check and balances at work.
