The above post makes it sound like the pieces of the Feeding Set were made in China. Since this could easily be taken out of context, we wanted to be clear. The Feeding Set is made in Korea. The fork and spoon are made in China. Further the fork and spoon are labeled made in China.
The point of the communication is two fold. First, a lot of products that are on the market say, "Made in XYZ country", when in fact that are actually manufactured in China and assembled in XYZ country.
Second, despite everyone's fears of China. The reality is that the issue largely falls on US shoulders. Our lack of governmental policy over the last 8 years has allowed all sorts of chemicals to find their way into US hands. Having worked for a lab funded by the National Institutes of Health, we were involved in testing products from every corner of the globe. The reality is that there were problematic products coming from every where. This absolutely includes the United States. The responsibility therefore falls on the shoulders of the producing company to make sure that the products are safe. The safety of products is our core reason for being. We conduct both biological and chemical testing. However, we please note that we never conduct animal testing.
There is an important book called Exposed, which highlights the safety and reality of what has transpired in our country in relation to consumer product safety. Its probably for sale on Amazon.
