    Do you know whether your hometown is the world’s capital of a special product? There are many cities across this great country, as well as the world, which are famously recognized for one specialty, or another.

Large quantities of combs were manufactured in Leominster in the plastics factories until silent film star, Irene Castle, cut her hair and others followed suit (When para 7).

    China then took action and canceled the export licenses of two Chinese factories that were directly associated with the recall (TIMELINE: Key dates in China 's August toy recalls, 2007).
