This past weekend our daughter and family visited for Father's Day. During this visit we collected the 'sick' Thomas The Tank Engines that our 4 year old grandson plays with when here. These toys made in China have been discovered to contain lead base paint (red) and are being recalled. Our daughter explained to her son that these toys are 'sick' and she will return them, along with the ones at their home, to the Thomas Hospital and they will return when 'all better'. Lately news reports have also highlighted other Chinese made products as potential hazards to our health. The pet food contamination as being the most in the recent headlines. 2-3 months ago doorgunner's thread 'Chinese Goodyear Marathons' illustrated his and our concern of their quality standards and apparent potential faliure, a real threat to our safety. I have no quarrel with China's emergence into the world market. However, for whatever reason their attention to the health safety of it's world customers needs more monitoring than we (US) obviously are giving attention to. The tire issue is obviously a threat to Airsteamer's safety. With each after market accessory or replacement part for our coaches we Streamers must scutinize more diligently our purchases and not depend on our government agencies to do their jobs.
