Is it safe???

In for one... even though the thought of putting a dental tool made in China in my mouth gives me the willies. I mean, they put lead in EVERYTHING, right?

@autocrosser: True but since I don't know where my dentist's tools are made... :D

I wouldn't stick that made in China stuff in my mouth. Last thing you want is a piece of questionable steel in some cheap plastic toy looking holder breaking off in your mouth.

The racism in this thread is astounding

vote-for1vote-against

I think most people are just joking. (I hope.)

vote-for1vote-against

it's not racism. It's the history of the quality of products made in china. Baby formula with poison, dog food with poison, kids toys with lead paint, kids jewelry with toxic cadmium. The list goes on and on. Racism would be if we all were somehow stating that Chinese PEOPLE were all evil and out out poison us. As far as I know, that is not the case.

Either way, we're speaking of China, the NATION, which as far as I know comprises many different ethnic groups and minorities, many of which have absolutely reprehensible RACIST/RACIAL views about other ethnic minorities in China. I'm not quite sure how stating anything about a nation can be relevant to discussions about RACE...? I mean wtf.... if someone thinks products from the US are garbage, which race would they be attacking, in your mind? Caucasian? Asian? Hispanic? Native American? Black? Asian-pacific Islander?

@Nickshi: You're just being ignorant, please educate yourself.

@clairela: It's not a joke. I will never consume any food containing ingredients from china, and most people I know will be very cautious about giving toys made in China to their younger kids, who put stuff in their mouths. Most pet owners I know refuse to purchase anything for their animals that contains any ingredients sourced or made in China.
lead, cadmium, melamine, and other toxic substances are frequently found in chinese goods, and China continues to allow cheap knockoffs and counterfeit goods to stream out of their country. Sure, some products may be well-made in China, like iphones, but the ratio of crap to quality is astounding.

just one of HUNDREDS of events in 2011 involving toxic items from China:

"In February 2011, a research team from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital tested lead levels in ceramic plates, bowls, teacups, spoons and other items that were made in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and offered for sale in shops in Philadelphia’s Chinatown neighborhood as well as Chinese-made wares sold at stores elsewhere. Among all this kitchenware, 25.3 percent of the products from Chinatown were lead-positive and 10 percent of the Chinese goods from outside Chinatown had lead in them. “We were astounded - astounded - to find so many of them positive for lead,” said Dr. Gerald O'Malley, a toxicologist who spearheaded the study and warned that lead in Chinese products presents a serious public health threat. Lead in eating utensils can seep into food and beverages, poisoning unsuspecting innocents"

@kamikazeken: You do go on and on and on.........................

@autocrosser: Honestly it having lead in it would be the least of my concerns... do a quick google on the number of chinese products that randomly explode and then have a whole new reason not to put chinese products in your mouth.

@kamikazeken: How many food items do we use made in China? A lot. It's ignorant not to realize how many things are made in china and yet we don't even care or notice until you see something like this and immediately think, "I bet there's lead in that"

@nickshi: Personally I use no food items made in china... I've always avoided it as much as possible but since it came to light that raw sewage is used in a surprising amount of their foods and of course the exploding soy sauce issues... I've opted to completely avoid ingesting anything made in china.

@nickshi: I know just how much of our food comes from China and it scares the crap out of me. I had to switch brands of apple sauce, mandarin oranges, and apple juice a fe months ago because of it. And yes, I do go a lot about this topic. The Chinese government has had the ability to crack down on this for decades but they refuse to because it would mean fewer jobs in China, meaning civil unrest. When we buy Tilapia we do our best to make sure it's not from China. It's not all that hard to figure out where stuff comes from, particularly items in cans/bottles/jars/boxes. Check your apple juice folks, it's usually from China. We grow some of the best apples right here on the west coast of the US, demand them from your grocer.

The thought of even putting a dental tool made in Mainland China (PRC) into my mouth compares easily to eating poison in my opinion.
