      *Be cautious of hair bands at open markets around the city too � they are
      probably from China since they are purchased in bulk very very cheap !!!!
      Take a good look before buying hair bands in future � especially the
      following kind..* <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      These Hair bands were made from used condoms and threads.

      *BEIJING (AFP) -* Used condoms are being recycled into hair bands in
      southern China threatening to spread sexually-transmitta ble diseases they
      were originally meant to prevent, state media reported Tuesday
      <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products, rubber
      hair bands have been found in local markets and beauty salons in Dongguan
      and Guangzhou cities in southern Guangdong province, China Daily newspaper
      said. <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      'These cheap and colorful rubber bands and hair ties sell well .....
      Threatening the health of local people,' it said.. Despite being recycled,
      the hair bands could still contain bacteria and viruses, it said.
      <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      'People could be infected with AIDS, (genital) warts or other diseases if
      they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while waving their
      hair into plaits or buns,' the paper quoted a local dermatologist who gave
      only his surname, Dong, as saying. A bag of ten of the recycled bands sells
      for just 25 sen (three cents), much cheaper than others on the market,
      accounting for their popularity, the paper said. <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      A government official was quoted as saying recycling condoms was illegal.
      China 's manufacturing industry has been repeatedly tarnished this year by a
      string of scandals involving shoddy or dangerous goods made for both
      domestic and foreign markets. <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      In response, it launched a public relations blitz this summer aimed at
      playing up efforts to strengthen monitoring systems. <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      Check your kids hair bands and make sure they do not put them in th eir
      mouth while trying to plait or tie their hair . <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      See below for Chinese Slippers now being sold in Walmart in the US .
      Hopefully, they are not yet in the Philippines ... <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      *REMEMBER THE PAINT ON KIDS TOYS ?* <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>

      This is very true as I heard it in news from one of our local radios here
      that our govt has to be extra careful on these cheap imports from China.
      These includes clothes, food, toys, slippers and even glasses because the
      Chinese are using some strong but cheap chemical in their manufactures.
      Cheap is becoming expensive and at the same time fatal. I nearly bought one
      pair of the slippers below for myself last week at the Japanese $2 shop at
      IMM last week. These slippers are also sold in Walmart, USA and same
      complaints received. <http://bit.ly/9a6YC7>
