What is it going to take for the US to boycott Chinese imports? Personally, I’m starting now. The latest concern is tainted cough syrup, fever medications, and even toothpaste containing poison.
The NY Times reports:

Toxic syrup has figured in at least eight mass poisonings around the world in the past two decades. Researchers estimate that thousands have died. In many cases, the precise origin of the poison has never been determined. But records and interviews show that in three of the last four cases it was made in China, a major source of counterfeit drugs.

The FDA issued a press release on the issue.
