Recalled toys contain chemical linked to date-rape drug

Just like the headline reads it contains a chemical linked to date-rape drug, this China thing seems to get worse and worse the best advice one could give is to read the labels and don’t buy any of these, it is worth it to pay a little more for something and feel safe about it. This incompetence has been found in toys mislabeled drugs and a little of everything else good advice,,please read to see where the product is made.

About 4.2 million Chinese-made children’s toys were recalled Wednesday after U.S. regulators learned a chemical on the toy beads turns into a powerful “date rape” drug when swallowed.

Two children in the USA went into comas after ingesting beads that were part of Aqua Dots craft sets. They have since recovered, Consumer Product Safety Commission spokesman Scott Wolfson said. Three children in Australia, which also recalled the toy, were hospitalized after swallowing the beads.

    Anything is possible, maybe USA TODAY got it wrong? Please enlighten me.

    China’s health officials have known of this regulatory gap since at least the mid-1990s, when a chemical company sold a tainted ingredient that killed nearly 100 children in Haiti. But Chinese regulatory agencies have failed to cooperate to stop chemical companies from exporting drug products.

    In 2006, at least 138 Panamanians died or were disabled after another Chinese chemical company sold the same poisonous ingredient, diethylene glycol, which was mixed into cold medicine.
