Made in China, Hated around the World

America is reeling under a unique scam - Pet food imported from China has been found to contain melamine, a chemical derived from coal and a cheap additive that looks like protein in tests! Some deaths have been reported and several thousand pets have fallen sick. Other maliciously ingenious Chinese ways of conning the world include instances of "fake baby milk formulas and soy sauce made from human hair to instances where cuttlefish were soaked in calligraphy ink to improve their color and eels were fed contraceptive pills to make them grow long and slim". (Source: New York Times) This reminds me of a notice at a neighbourhood store: "No guarantee for products made in China". Are we just ranting against the Chinese because of jealousy or do we have genuine reasons to do so?
