Chinese imports.

Melamine, an industrial chemical which poisoned thousands of Chinese children, has made its way to the United States and into some candy sold in Connecticut. I understand that large companies need to make products in China in order to increase their profits. But what doesn't make sense to me, as a consumer, is why aren't there more safeguards and controls in place to assure that this kind of thing does not happen again.
