Whenever the United States threatens China with trade sanctions the Chinese political machine spins into action, often countering our threats of higherÂ tariffsÂ and trade sanctions by referring to them as Â ”Acts of War.”
So what, then, should we do when the Chinese continue to manufacture and distribute poisonous products to US consumers? Since all industry in China is state-owned, should we not hold the People’s Republic of China directly responsible?
The latest incident involves the over-irradiation of pet food shipped to U.S. distributors from Chinese manufacturers and is responsible for thousands of illnesses and hundreds of Â deaths:
At least 360 dogs and one cat reportedly have died in the U.S. after eating chicken jerky pet treats made in China, even as claims of illnesses tied to the products have topped 2,200, federal veterinary health officials said.
Food and Drug Administration officials this weekÂ issued the first summary of reports of pet deathsÂ linked to the jerky treats in the past 18 months, along with the strongest suggestion to date that owners might want to avoid the products all together.
âThe FDA is reminding pet owners that jerky pet treats are not necessary for pets to have a fully balanced diet, so eliminating them will not harm pets,â agency officials said in an online report.
At the same time, the FDA said it will begin testing treats to see whether irradiation of the products may have contributed to reports of treat-related problems ranging from diarrhea and vomiting to kidney failure, Fanconi syndrome and death.
In 2011 tainted milk products were responsible for deaths and serious illness all across China.
How long before U.S. consumers suffer the same fate? Would the poisoning of thousands of Americans by state-sponsored Chinese manufacturers be considered an ‘Act of War’ or just the cost of doing (cheap) business with the premier slave labor state in the world?
