The Office of the US Trade Representative proposed 10 per cent tariffs Tuesday on a list of 6031 Chinese product lines. It includes fruit and vegetables, handbags, refrigerators, rain jackets and baseball gloves.
This most recent maneuver follows a threat President Trump made last month, and comes days after the USA and China imposed tit-for-tat tariffs on more than $30 billion in goods. China immediately responded with $34 billion worth of tariffs on American-made goods in retaliation.
China, however, has explicitly excluded LNG from its list of USA energy goods that may be subject to tariffs, as it seeks to fight air pollution by a massive switch from coal-fired to gas-fired residential heating.
That prompted fears it might go beyond matching Washington's duty increases by disrupting operations for USA companies in China.
A Commerce Ministry statement said, "It is totally unacceptable for American side to publish a tariff list in a way that is accelerating and escalating". The tariffs announced Tuesday would be the third wave. By listing potential tariffs on goods including refrigerators, cotton, and steel and aluminum products, the Trump administration is going after China's electronics, textiles, metal products and auto parts industries.
The dispute between China and the U.S. comes on top of Washington's confrontation with other allies and major trading partners including Canada, Mexico and the European Union, after it imposed steep tariffs on their steel and aluminum.
"The Chinese side is shocked by the actions of the USA", a statement on the ministry's website declared.
The United States complained China used predatory practices in a push to challenge American technological dominance.

Apple Music Passes Spotify in Total U.S. Subscriber Numbers
Spotify still leads outside of the USA , tallying 75 million subscribers as part of its first earnings report in May. Apple is likely to draw about US 27 million users by the end of the year, with Spotify expected to have 24 million.
The unintended consequences of Trump’s trade war with China
Part of his plan is to radically change how U.S. trade deals work and to focus on protecting the domestic economy. The administration accuses China of using predatory practices in a push to overtake US technological dominance.
He said Donald Trump has a challenge ahead.
China is no stranger to trade fights, but their approach toward the United States is being handled differently than prior battles.
Commodity-linked currencies such as the Australian dollar suffered deep losses on Wednesday.
The policy is a top concern for USA officials.
He said the administration should get back to the negotiating table with China.
China's stocks slumped following news of the new tariffs after three days of gains, and the yuan weakened.
Trade negotiations in the previous months have failed and the trade war officially started last week when the two countries imposed 25 per cent of each other's products worth of US$34 billion. In order to safeguard the core interests of the country and the fundamental interests of the people, the Chinese government will, as always, take the necessary counter-measures.
Republican U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch said the U.S. announcement "appears reckless and is not a targeted approach".
Mr Trump has threatened to tax $550bn (£415bn) in Chinese products - exceeding America's total imports from China a year ago.
Even more tariffs could be on the way.
