Thanks for the link. I can't remember anything on the news about this when
the other incidents occurred years back. But I was a teenager then and not
prone to care about the news. I'm really glad we don't use over the counter
stuff except ibuprofen now.

I quite agree. Let's not forget about some of the unscrupulous types
in our own countries.

And I can recall quite well being denounced as a 'racist' for calling the
Chinese out as the unscrupulous, morally bankrupt, unethical pieces of ****
they really are just a few months back. Need more proof? Kepp on watching
the news. I stand by my earlier assertions that the Chinese are not fit to
be players in a world market.

I think the crux of the problem is lack of a good regulatory system.
This kind of thing has happened all over the world. The reason we're
seeing so much of it out of China is because of how fast the country is
building out its industry.
