    Might want to throw it out.

    Federal and state watchdogs opened a new front Monday in the campaign to keep poisons out of Chinese imports, launching inquiries into high levels of cadmium in children's jewelry while Walmart pulled many suspect items from its store shelves.

    It's truly disgusting what they put in our everyday items. Where do I even start? From chemicals in household items that cause infertility in children to carcinogenic chemicals in food. They don't give a crap about us or our welfare, just money money money.

    Not surprised! Anybody remember the thread I started challenging everyone to NOT buy anything made in China for Christmas? And all the replies....."But I LIKE Walmart!" even though it wasn't about Walmart. [​IMG]

    Well - I'm just as guilty. Got some stuff from American Eagle Outfitters- made in Indonesia. [​IMG]
