However they cannot do what we in the U.S. allow them to do. If we don’t buy it then they just waste their times bring it to the front lines. I think they should not be tort liability because we allowed it to come over into the U.S. When looking at the steps in the U.S. as well as the manufacturer’s steps, I think they the U.S. should be liable for what they allow into the country. They could warn consumers about the harmful products letter the people know about the danger to their health. I never understood why they would ever allow it to come over into the U.S. from the get go. I also think if we are going to trade than the trade should be of good products not bad.

I agree that companies should be liable, but I thought of another viewpoint while reading your post. You mention stopping them from bringing their food to the US. This would be a way to eliminate all risk, but there could be an extreme downside as well. If we just look at the example of apples, and eliminated all apple imports, this could cause economic issues for the US. Sure, we would not have to worry about bad apples, but we would not have the import of good apples either. This would lower the supply of apples here in the US and the price of apples would go up. I think another solution would be for companies to regulate the quality of goods coming from China rather than to eliminating them in order to avoid economic ripples in the US.

Would you characterize the liability each of you referred to as consistent with a "strict liability” theory? In other words, should liability be dependent upon the showing that a company breached an established duty of care? Or is the fact of ultimate injury and damages to the consumer sufficient to establish liability? In either case, and most importantly, WHY? Prof WJM RE: Product Liability Toby Ray 11/6/2016 8:58:52 AM Joyce, The issue may be what is "good" here and what is "good" there? The United States has been doing business with China for many years and we all know that the products and the cost are both cheaper there. We have seen so many cases where Chinese products are dangerous and videos showing what is done to food products there, and yet we continue to do business with them. Is that China's fault? I feel that the companies that are using their labor and their products or ingredients are playing Russian Roulette with their customers lives. if the retailers have information that their supplying companies are using Chinese ingredients or products and are not
