Confucius say ... "The things you own, end up owning you" ... in bed.

U.S. toy-making giant Mattel Inc. said this Wednesday it was recalling some models of Polly Pocket, Batman, Barbie and other Chinese-made toys from Asian markets as part of a major worldwide exercise to remove the toys from shelves because of lead paint and tiny magnets that could be potentially swallowed by kids.

Chinese-made toothpaste recalled in June was found to contain a poisonous chemical used in antifreeze.

Union, N.J.-based Foreign Tire Sales recalled 255,000 Chinese-made tires on August 9 because they could suffer tread separation, about half the number originally thought to be defective.

A recall of pet food made with tainted China-made wheat gluten sparked panic in North America after dozens of confirmed dog and cat deaths in late 2006 and early 2007.

There really seems to be some very dangerous products on the market right now.

If we could only find the common denominator, we might be able to protect ourselves.

It's just so hard to find a connection.

What is it dammit?

What ... I ask you!

When you have a population of 1.3 Billion people, I guess survival of the fittest can be a good thing.

What really is the true cost of low prices?
