  Check your kids hair bands and make sure they do not put them in their mouth while trying to braid or tie their hair .
 
DANGEROUS Hair Bands for our Daughters!!!!
 
Be cautious of hair bands at open markets around the city too - they are probably from China since they are purchased in bulk very very cheap !!!!
Take a good look before buying hair bands in future - specially like the following kind...


..
    

These Hair bands were made from used condoms
and threads.

BEIJING (AFP) - Used condoms are being recycled into hair bands in southern China threatening to spread sexually-transmittable diseases they were originally meant to prevent, state media reported Tuesday

In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products, rubber hair bands have been found in local markets and beauty salons in Dongguan and Guangzhou cities in southern Guangdong province, China Daily newspaper said..

'These cheap and colorful rubber bands and hair ties sell well ...... threatening the health of local people,' it said.
Despite being recycled, the hair bands could still contain bacteria and viruses, it said. < BR>
'People could be infected with AIDS, (genital) warts or other diseases if they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while waving their hair into plaits or buns,' the paper quoted a local dermatologist who gave only his surname, Dong, as saying. A bag of ten of the recycled bands sells for just 25 sen (three cents), much cheaper than others on the market, accounting for their popularity, the paper said.

A government official was quoted as saying recycling condoms was illegal.   China 's manufactur ing industry has been repeatedly tarnished this year by a string of scandals involving shoddy or dangerous goods made for both domestic and foreign markets.

In response, it launched a public relations blitz this summer aimed at playing up efforts to strengthen monitoring systems.

They take the time to look it up on Snopes, but don't bother to notice that the hairbands were made from unused/defective condoms and only sold in China? Really?

It is true, sort of? Well that's better than I expected. Given that the quoted official is named "Dong" I expected this to be an outright fraud.

Holy shit, really? Of all the things to worry about from China, this embellishment on half-truth is what gets emailed?

Right-wingers: For when the ugly truth is just not ridiculous enough... we'll make really goofy shit up!

Somehow, I don't think red state right wing America will let any of these Chinese scandals, real or confabulated, mess with their love affair with cheap plastic crap from WalMart!
