Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Do you think they sample chinese factories too?  (The same rules would therefore apply.)  My suggestion is that we are seeing the deliberate reduction of standards due to...the lust for higher profits.  My bet: the companies shipping the contaminated foodstuffs are...owned by people with lossa money, including (but not only) americans.

Hence your good point re: REACH.

Recently, the European Union has adopted some of the world's strictest policies on e-waste and potentially hazardous chemicals.


Does it also regulate foodstuffs?
