According to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission the majority of U.S. product recalls are imported from other countries. Most of the recalled imported product are made in China (60%).

While toys are one of the most common defective and dangerous items that are made in China the issue is not limited to toys alone. Defective or dangerous food, medications, pet supplies and more from China account for an overwhelming number of injuries and deaths in the United States.

Common Defective/Dangerous Chinese Manufactured Products

Products ranging from toothpaste to tires are some of the latest Chinese made products to be found dangerous or defective in the U.S. Some of the most common defective Chinese-made products are:

  • Toys (Build-A-Bear, Thomas the Train and Mattel have recalled millions of products made in China)
  • Toothpaste
  • Pet Food
  • Medications
  • Tires (More than 400,000 tires manufactured in China have been recalled in the last 5 years)
  • Seafood

 

Recalled Chinese-Made Toys

Back in August and December 2011 the popular do-it-yourself toy company Build A Bear recalled over 326,000 of their products that were made in China, according to The Daily Mail. In August the company had to recall 26,500 pins that were made with lead based paint and in December a particular bear made in China was found to be a choking hazard causing the company to recall 300,000 bears.

Mattel faced a lead paint issue with millions of their toys, particularly in the Fisher Price line, causing a nationwide recall. Thomas the Train also had to recall millions of products because of lead paint usage. Other issues Mattel and like-toy companies face are small parts that become choking hazards.
