That's always an issue with our new global economy. Whenever you outsource your products to another country, you are in danger of unintended consequences. Floods in Thailand, poor infrastructure, political unrest, corrupt bureaucrats, massive power failures (India), workers who have a differing work ethic, different environmental rules, creating unemployment in your own country, etc. etc. etc. I wonder how much Canon really "saved" by outsourcing to China?
