  • My guinea pig cage
    Crock Pot--It's OLD
    Popcorn Popper--I bought it in 2000
    Flower Pots
    Guinea Pig igloo
    laundry baskets
    New Balance shoes--though it says made from imported/domestic materials. They count because I think there are American workers making them..

  • Sure there is a lot of things in my home that arent made in China.. I do try and buy the american made products before anything else though- sometimes with certain items they are just harder to find, like clothes.

  • Yes, my quilt rack, and the 75 yr old trunk my TV sits on, a coat rack my great grandfather made in the 1940's , all of our new windows, made in a town about 80 miles from here. Our car trailer I bought for my Hubby, it was made in the next town over, about 5 miles from here. We try to buy local if we can....

  • 2007 Chinese Export Recall
    Main article: 2007 Chinese export recalls
    The 2007 Chinese export recalls were a series of scandals involving tainted food and products exported from China, starting with tainted pet food imported from China to the United States that poisoned pets.[1] The recalls sparked international concern that many products made in China do not meet minimum quality standards. Soon after, the US halted imports of seafood from China after tests detected the presence of drugs unapproved in the US.[2][3] China has gone on record to admit that nearly a fifth of products made in China do not reach minimum standards.[4] Also, some children's toys made in China were found to contain excessive levels of lead, prompting widespread concern. In 2006, shipments of cough syrup and other medicines, imported from China to Panama and laden with the toxin diethylene glycol, caused mass poisonings and killed 83 people. wikipedia

  • Lots of stuff. But we need to prop up the manufacturing in this country. It would mean that stuff would be more expensive, though, and not everyone could afford a $29 dvd player. They would be a few hundrend dollars instead. People don't want that.
