China the Bully

China is hitting back at its trading partners that complained about unsafe and shoddy products, according to this report.

Indonesia was asked to lower its product standards after Indonesian authorities found mercury-laced make-up, carcinogen-laden candy and industrial chemicals-infused dried fruit.

China recalled Philippine-made banana chips, ostensibly because of quality issues, after the country's food safety agency banned Chinese candies found to contain formaldehyde.

China also hit back at Malaysia after the latter found fungus on nuts and died fruit containing carcinogenic sweeteners imported from the country by recalling Malaysian-made yogurt.
