Is it just me, or is China having a Quality problem?

Apparently, they’ve never heard of 6-sigma.

Maybe that’s why their junk is so cheap.

They are not the Japanese.

One of the many issues with outsourcing. You get what you pay for.

The cost of complying with government regulation is a significant amount. However, as we're learning, there are very good reasons for some government regulation. On the other hand, competitors could capitalize on this news by advertising their lead-free products as an alternative. The market can regulate where the government cannot.

Come on - they invented six sigma 4,000 years ago in the Middle Kingdom, however reporting bad production numbers for your military run slave labor factory usually results in a very quick onset of lead poisioning.

Well, they found a way to get rid of their mercury (Compact Florescent bulbs) and they needed a way to get rid of all that old lead from semiconductors and computer monitors they had laying around.

Six Sigma only works if one actually cares about the end product.

China has no standards and cannot meet our regulations.

There is a reason their products are so cheap.
