And You Thought Lead Was Bad

Australia pulls 'date rape' drug toy

2 hours, 57 minutes ago

SYDNEY, Australia - Australian officials ordered a popular Chinese-made children's toy pulled from the shelves after scientists found it contained a chemical that converts into a powerful "date rape" drug when ingested.
[...]

Scientists say the beads contain a chemical that the human body metabolizes into the so-called "date rape" drug gamma hydroxy butyrate. When eaten, the compound — made from common and easily available ingredients — can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death.
[...]
Well, the parents should have been watching their kids better anyway - not letting the eat the shit - but nevertheless, this is just more in the endless stream of shit coming from China.

You would think the dumb-asses would have learned a lesson by now on maybe keeping a better watch on the shit they're exporting.

But then again, we should keep a closer watch on what we buy. Like maybe stay the hell away from anything made in China?

In that people think the FDA here in the states is just another useless, money grubbing government agency, it beats the hell out of what China has to offer.

Well, the Chinese used to make good firearms. Probably the only thing that came from China that was worth a damn. So Clinton banned them.

Where can I get me a hold of that pull-toy?

No reason.

You need a little packing/moving pick-me-up!
