More problems with toys. A toy called " Aqua Dot ", I believe, has been found to have a chemical in it like a date rape drug. :o :o

It is just getting beyond weird what is happening to all these toys. It is beginning to sound like Santa may not have a good toy holiday season this year with all these toy problems and recalls. :grumpy:

I saw something about that on the news. Some kids ate the dots and went into a coma, and this could potentially kill 'em if they stop breathing. Good thing that they're being pulled off the shelves; it's terrible when this sort of thing happens. :(

At this point, I don't trust China at all when it comes to manufacturing anything. I also doubt that they "accidentally" used the wrong glue, since what they were supposed to use was non-toxic, not the stuff that contains chemicals.

:yikes: A date rape drug in a toy?? :o :sweat:

Seriously, I'm not buying anything else with "Made in China" on it until they get some controls on this stuff. Isn't there some kind of government agency that inspects imported products? The government seems to have their nose in everything else, why aren't they checking any of this yet? :blindfold:

OMG LOL!

And they are starting to. El presidente just gave some kind of order to make sure that we don't get any imported items, without knowing fully what they are.

This Aqua dot thing is freaking me completely out. My kids wanted those for Christmas. I was shocked. I'm scared to buy them anything at this point.

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Now, there is talk of lawsuits related to some of these recall toys, etc.

I heard on the news that the California State Attorney General is suing about 20 companies, including Mattel and Walmart, related to these dangerous recalled toys. It should be interesting to see how this goes.

Of course, I naturally expect any major fall out to fall upon the shoulders of the consumers, as usually happens in any other situation. :roll:

A major recall today but this time it is not a toy - it is a microwave.

Did you hear what happened in China a little while back? They executed the former head of their FDA for "dereliction of duty." There was more to it, but part of the reason was all the recalls painting Chinese products in a bad light.
