Product recall systems were officially installed in China on August 31, AP reported. The systems will recall unsafe food and toys, and they follow a system for defective cars set up in 2005. The systems were put in place by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), and will be used to track domestic and export products. The new mechanism means AQSIQ can force a food product recall and issue a consumer alert if producers are negligent or if a food safety incident occurs. Toy manufacturers must stop making and selling toys that are unsafe by other countries' standards, even if they abide by Chinese laws and regulations. The recall systems are some of the most concrete steps Beijing has taken so far to address the ongoing product safety crisis.
