    From The Daily Reckoning

    The Chinese have had a hard time with goods they’ve been exporting to the
    United States lately...tainted pet food, “filthy” fish, lead toys...and
    now – faulty condoms? Yikes...

    The Washington Post reports that “tens of thousands of condoms provided
    free by the District to curb HIV-AIDS have been returned to the health
    department because of complaints that their paper package is easily
    damaged and could render the condoms ineffective.”

    Organizations that give prophylactics out for free reported an 80%
    decrease after introducing the Chinese condoms.

    Added to the complaint that the wrappers were easily torn is that the
    expiration dates were often illegible and “as a result, recipients said
    they had little confidence that the condoms would offer protection.”


    :D :D

    Penny wise and pound foolish, folks. Remember when Wal-Mart's schtick was "Made in the U.S.A?" What is it today? What will it be tomorrow?

    How much is your kid's cancer diagnosis going to cost you?
