"WASHINGTON — Millions of Chinese-made toys for children have been pulled from shelves in North America and Australia after scientists found they contain a chemical that converts into a powerful date rape drug when ingested. Two children in the U.S. and three in Australia were hospitalized after swallowing the beads." -FOXNews.com

Yes, I know, the title can be slightly deceiving. Anyways, after being busted for having lead in their products, they continue to amaze the industry with what almost seems like a subtle attempt at terrorism (I didn't say that, did I?).

This time, though, they may have real criminal charges on their hands, as well as some blood. My question is... where's the standardization for these manufactures? Aren't their inspectors... obviously, investigations should be a lot more thorough.

Talking points: What sort of criminal charges should these manufactures face?

I say they shut the company down. If they're a corporation, good luck ever getting any stock investors anyways.

I don't understand why our government allows China's government to make huge amounts of money while our own workers get laid off and their cheaply-made crap poisons us.

Because our government is compromised of spineless, corporate bastards who couldn't give a fuck about Joe Schmoe's job status or wellbeing.

I think that's hilarious. A good lesson for children to heed the "don't swallow" warnings.
