Robin: I'm going out to the store. I'm running out of toothpaste and shampoo. Do you want me to get anything for you?
Juliet: No, thanks a lot. You said you're buying toothpaste? Beware of toothpaste that's mode in China.
Robin: How come?
Juliet: I read a report in the China Post a few days ago. The Food and Drug Administration told people to throw away toothpaste that's mode in China, since it may contain a poisonous chemical used in antifreeze! But China immediately denied the accusation, saying that the claim was irresponsible!
Robin: That is so wrong. I think China should eat its words and start reclaiming the tainted toothpaste.
