Can you avoid "Made in China" goods? Quite difficult really because many items are made in China nowadays. From clothing to electrical goods to food and even automobile, made in China goods are flooding the world market. It is not difficult to see why this is so. With the opening of their doors, many foreign companies are investing in China by opening up factories to produce their goods at a much reduced cost compared to production at home. Trouble is, sometimes quality control might be lacking. Yet, due to its competitive pricing, consumers don't mind purchasing these goods. Sometimes there is not much choice really.

Of greater concern lately is the numerous reports of tainted or defective goods coming from the land called China. Just do a google search and you will find various reports on product recalls, the latest being some alleged defective tyres. So much so that Democratic Senator Richard Durbin, a top campaigner in the US Congress for tighter food safety laws said that "I think we have reached a point unfortunately where 'made in China' is now a warning label in the United States".

So, do you use a lot of made in China goods?
