Chinese Stuff

I’m telling you – you don’t really want to eat it.
In Japan the Chinese dumplings put kids into a coma because of insecticide in them.

Tests by the Japanese health ministry revealed that the dumplings contained traces of an organic phosphorous insecticide that can cause severe stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhoea.

And now in cancer drugs made in China are putting people into a coma.

A huge state-owned Chinese pharmaceutical company that exports to dozens of countries, including the United States, is at the center of a nationwide drug scandal after nearly 200 Chinese cancer patients were paralyzed or otherwise harmed last summer by contaminated leukemia drugs.

(This particular company makes all the RU486 imported here. Though its from a different and presumably safer plant. Should be just fine. No worries.)

To be fair there are like a zillion companies in China, so having a couple hundred manufacturing plants screw up is just a small blip. Right?
