In the wake of backlash against Made-in-China toys in 2007, two studies done by Ivey Professor Paul Beamish and Hari Bapuji at the University of Manitoba generated significant international attention. The two studies: “Toy Recall – Is China Really the Problem?” and “Toy Import and Recall Levels: Is There a Connection?” were published by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada and quoted in over 200 media outlets.
In 2008, a follow-up paper called “Toy Recalls and China: One Year Later”, again published by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, noted that the number of recalls continued to increase in 2008. However, the total number of toy units recalled appeared to decrease.
