Abstract: 
Study from the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada noting that earlier research showed that most toy recalls were the results of design flaws by the creator companies rather than attributed to Chinese manufacturers. Follow up findings showed that toy recalls have increased at a faster rate than the increase in imports from foreign countries. Also, design-related recalls were higher, and increased faster, than manufacturing-related recalls, and that the trends were less pronounced for Chinese-made toys.
