CHINESE-made consumer goods have been subject to more safety recalls in Canada than products from any other country, according to recently released Health Canada data.

In all, 431 Chinese-made products — including 150 toys, 73 household goods and 53 baby products — have been recalled since 2005.

That’s four times more than the second-place US, which had just 97 products recalled in Canada during that same period.

The recalled Chinese products included barbecue lighters that leaked fuel, toys coated with lead paint and pacifiers that could cause a baby to choke.
