What's with all the 'China's Poisoning Us' reports lately?

Suddenly, with no issues in recent memory, China's the cause of:

- melamine laced pet food
- Veggie Booty kids snax fortified with salmonella
- ethylene glycol contaminated toothpaste
- seafood not fit for human consumption

Did they really, suddenly drop the ball, or did the FDA suddenly wake up and become more vigilant, or is it a massive media conspiracy to reduce US consumer confidence in Chinese products?

I do not think so. Japanese news was in a fret about Chinese imports when I was there on vacation. I think bad chinese stuff was always out there. I remember reports occuring a few years ago saying to avoid cheap power bars because they could cause fires.

I think it just took people losing their pets to make people and the media to begin to pay close attention.
