What Are Our Leaders Saying?
"We need to do more to ensure that American families have confidence in what they find on our store shelves. They have the right to expect the food they eat, or the medicines they take, or the toys they buy for their children to be safe."
-- President George W. Bush
"The only thing more frightening than these tainted toys from China falling into the hands of children is how powerless the very agency in charge of consumer protection is to stop it."
-- Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.)
"We need to strengthen the testing and inspection procedures used to verify that all toy products, from all sources, comply with U.S. safety standards."
-- Daniel Grossman, chairman of the board of the Toy Industry Association of America
"It's clear that our consumer-product safety net has a hole in it the size of China."
-- Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.)
