Meanwhile, Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Wang Xinpei (王新培) yesterday hit out at the foreign press and "irresponsible people" for raising fears about Chinese-made toys and other exports that have been recalled due to safety concerns.

"Some media and irresponsible people take a small problem and make it into a large one," Wang told reporters when asked about various recalls, most recently by US toy giant Mattel.

"Because toys can affect the health of children, the Chinese government attaches great importance to the quality of those products. But the media saying that all Chinese products are bad, this is a shame," he said.
