To get us? You mean an attack on Americans by the Chinese? Things like lead paint and toxic chemicals are rather standard corner-cutting measures in some Chinese manufacturing, but they don’t need to do such things to “get us.” China’s workforce is about 1.5 times larger than our entire population. They don’t need to attack us when they can outwork us for lower pay!
Truth be told, American manufacturers typically make products that are inferior to what they could be. I’m not talking food here - that’s very tightly regulated. I worked with a guy who was an engineer for GE and had developed a way to double the life expectancy of a refrigerator by making a simple $5 change. It was a no-go because that $5 per unit times 10,000,000 units is a lot of money, especially when it meant that they would get one sale instead of two.
Cost and payoff are relevant in every culture. I think regulation is the big difference.
I recommend eating lots of the Cadbury eggs, especially the “creme” eggs, but that’s just how I roll. But if you feel better going with a different brand, that’s cool. Just don’t deny yourself the experience!
