The European Union’s Consumer Commissioner Meglena Kuneva has wound up her five-day trip to China calling for better quality control for Chinese exports destined for Europe. On the last day she toured a toy factory. The Chinese toy association says exports last year topped 15 billion euros. However the EU says that toys for the first time outstripped electrical goods in RAPEX alerts for dangerous products.
“Unfortunately, according to the statistics to our system for dangerous goods, we detected quite a high figure of dangerous toys on the European markets and I would like this message to be conveyed not only at very high official levels, which I did at the beginning, but also at local levels and to the producers as well,” says Kuneva.
