EU And US Team Up On Chinese Toys

From BBC News:

The EU and the United States have agreed to work closely to persuade Chinese toy-makers to improve the safety of their products.

Millions of Chinese-made toys were recalled in 2007 after safety concerns about lead paint or detachable magnets.

EU commissioner Meglena Kuneva said, after talks with her US counterpart, Nancy Nord, that the world’s two major economies had to speak with one voice.

“We are pro-open markets, [but] not compromising on safety,” she said.
