U.S. and China Sign Product Safety Agreements

A Wall Street Journal article by Jason Leow and Jane Zhang reports that China has signed product-safety agreements with the Bush administration that will place a greater burden on China to regulate exports of  food, aminal feed, drugs and medical devices.  Product exporters will have to register with the Chinese government, which in turn will certify that the products meet U.S. FDA standards.  The agreement was signed by Mike Leavitt, Secretary of Health and Human Services, as part of current trade talks with China.
