Posted a thread under FOODS "eating foods from China."
This new thread is an attempt to continue the discussion
regarding - are you watching labels and/or are you buying
food (can be other products) made in China? Electronics
is a difficult issue since there are not many made in the
US.

I never consider where a product is made. However, I did notice that one or two of the cell phone accessories that were made in China took like a month to get to me.

Other than that, it is transparent. I don't care. I am a world consumer.

I won't buy food processed/grown in China. For other products, I check labels, and if the choice is a product from China or another option from another country, I buy the product made in the other country. I try to buy made in the USA when possible.

There have been too many defective goods from China for me to willingly and knowingly buy goods from that county. I realize that since many components for products come from China, it is likely impossible to avoid goods made in China.

You are right but China have nany qualities of its products and standard of these products is different. So China make also some good quality products.

We do not eat food from China, and we avoid other Chinese imports as much as we can.

Too many recalls... too much inferior quality!
