How Many Strikes Does China Get?

In case you missed this January item in the Wall Street Journal, in addition to deadly pet foods and toxic toys, China has also been shipping us defective drywall:

As if property owners don't have enough trouble with their home values, some now have the very walls of their homes "emitting sulfur-based" gases, causing damage to their A/C systems and creating potential health hazards???

Can we stop accepting these products already? If we can't even visit Cuba, why should we import from China?

Flooding the markets with cheap products, that poison our children and homes, while driving US manufactures of products out of business....hummm....

For about 3 years now we really watch where the products we buy are made. It is very difficult to escape Made in China. Actually almost impossible. But when we can and do have a choice we stay away.

I don't have much sympathy for builders who try to cut corners by using cheaper drywall - drywall is just about the cheapest building material out there - it costs far more to install it than it does to purchase.
