So, it was announced today that China has banned the use of lead paint in exports to the U.S. The move, part of a pledge to … WHAT??? Hold on, they just now banned the use of lead paint in the export of toys to the United States? Shouldn’t this have been done a LONG LONG time ago? Lead paint has been banned in toys here since 1978.
Chuanzhong Wei, vice minister of China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said that we shouldn’t expect 100% safety and that “We should not over-propagandize the problem.” I believe that’s Chinese code for BAN THE MEDIA FROM DISCUSSING IT.
Again, write these companies and tell them to bring manufacturing back home!
