    Chinese press quiet about export safety scare
    August
    2007Beijing – Rising global concerns about the safety of Chinese-made
    exports, reflected now in a US recall of nearly a million toys, went
    virtually unreported in China’s government-controlled press on
    Friday.Apart from a vague reassurance that Chinese vegetables were
    safe, carried in an English-language paper read mostly by foreigners,
    the vast majority of the nation’s print and electronic media kept
    silent on the issue.This is despite the fact that China’s toy industry,
    which earned $17,8-billion for the nation last year and employs
    hundreds of thousands of people, could potentially see a severe impact
    from the recall.US-based Fisher-Price said Wednesday it was recalling
    967 000 toys including popular Sesame Street and Dora the
    Explorer-branded toys over fears their paint could contain excessive
    levels of lead.
