Since it's not approved for sale, and had proven dangerous, I'd prefer the government of Canada sue the shit out of the importer.
That will make it clear that products must be approved and/or proven safe by the importer.

The Chinese have found that lead is an effective cure for criminal/anti-social behaviour. In pellet form properly administered to the back of the head. Only one treatment necessary.......

real question is: Why are we still buying from them?
First time is a "mistake"
Second time is on purpose.
Third time, is well - game over.
I haven't bought anything "made in china" for almost 2 yrs - one of the hardest things I ever had to do, everything, is made in China.
By not buying their products of any kind, we force a recognized dis-satisfaction. China needs to get the message.
With the recalled pet foods, the contamination went much further than with pets, it was in livestock feed for animals that were for human consumption. Food had to be recalled AND if this incident had of slipped under the mat for even a month, people would have died!!! Now what easier way of winning a war, without having to lift a finger.
My advice: Canada should completely stop purchasing anything that is a product of China OR has ingredients that are from China.

Glad to hear your not knowingly buying Chinese, but methinks you may still be unknowingly doing it.

The reason I say this is because of a television report I saw a few months ago when the dog food problem was running rampant. The report stated that distrubutors and retailer can call their products Canadian made if a certain amount of the overall product is produced in Canada. The amount is extremely small when compared to imported filler and things.

One of the examples they gave was the dog food in question. Numerous brands were called Canadian made but still had about 60 percent of the chinese product in them.

So much like calling things organinc, unless the government changes the rules on calling products Canadian we will still be buying chinese whether we know it or not.

Good idea. And because it is a good idea it won't be done. :idea:
