The same with many chickens.
Our great FDA at work again. The chickens will be all processed and most sold to fast food restaurants for sandwiches, along with schools and supermarkets. The China slaughter and processing are not nearly equal to the requirements here.
Read several articles on Google about this, and even one that was defending the eating of tilapia said to avoid the fish that came from China ?
Imported food we eat and the junk we buy:
Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China,
and so are most of Europe ‘s Best.
Arctic Gardens are OK so is Birdseye.
Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn’t work anyway, big scam.
If the country of origin is not clearly marked, beware
If produce, ask an employee.
Watch out for packages which state “prepared for”, “packed by” or “imported by”. We don’t understand the lack of mandatory labelling, especially the produce.
The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store.
Go to the local farmers’ markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.
How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U. S. or Canada ? It is not, it is part of Obama’s ‘trade agreement’ with China .
FOR EXAMPLE THE “OUR FAMILY” BRAND OF MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN ‘FROM CHINA ‘. – SO, for a FEW MORE CENTS, BUY THE * LIBERTY * BRAND, *GOLD BRAND or DOLE from CALIFORNIA *.
ALL “HIGH LINER” AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR INDONESIA . THE PACKAGE MAY SAY “PACIFIC SALMON” ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR THE SMALL PRINT. MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH.
If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you’ll be alarmed; eg: growth hormones, expired anti- biotic from humans? Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam , China or the Philippines .
Steinfeld’s Pickles are made in India – just as bad!
Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand comes from Indonesia .
Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China . Most sold in Aldi stores.
While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys, and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands! Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.
Well, duh! Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?
SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF, CANADA and the U.S.
Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China ‘ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at what you can do without.
THINK ABOUT THIS
If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor fast! The downside? Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.
Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.
*START NOW and don’t stop, and tell your friends*
Send this to everybody you know. Let’s show them that we are intelligent, and NOBODY can take us for granted *Start reading labels more closely and buy American even if it cost a few cents more*.
