"Considering the extensive problems in recent months (years, really) it should
come as no surprise that someone is planning to highlight the fact that their
products do not contain no ingredients from China. China, along with plenty of
help from the corporate world who wanted more profit as well as under-funded
regulators who were cut to the bone by the GOP Congress, has created this mess
so they should have to deal with the global black eye. The main issue I have
with it is that it does let the other participants off the hook and it also is
blind to comparable issues with sources from other countries."
There has been a lot of talk about what could set back China's industry, and this could be it. With a growing list of problems associated with items coming from China, there will be a growing backlash, The worse thing that could happen for China is that a China Free label starts getting slapped on products, and spreads across the consumer market. If it wants to turn this around, it is going to have to take strong action against the companies that are operating in such a shady manner.
