IMPORTED FOOD WE EAT AND THE JUNK WE BUY
The below is a copy and paste that
is worth re-posting and has circulated throughout the internet.
Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe's
Best. Arctic Gardens are okay and so is Birdseye.
Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or
Canada, the other stuff is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken
poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world.
U.S. is next.
Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in in huge containers from China
and re-packed here.
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
Watch out for packages which state "prepared for", "packed by", or "imported
by". There's a lack of mandatory labeling, 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
Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It's
important for all of us.
How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced
in the U.S. or Canada?
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 IS FROM CALIFORNIA. Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears
in a plastic jar that come from China.
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.
Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on
how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend wire crates of live chickens over
the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken s--t.
If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you'll be
alarmed; e.g., growth hormones, expired anti-biotic from humans. Never
buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam,
China, Philippines. Steinfeld's Pickles are made in India - just as
bad! I have personally boycotted Tilapia fish for years after learning
about their fish farming methods.
Another example is 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
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,
people of 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 how dependent you are
on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do
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.
PS: I did some grocery shopping this afternoon and read the
labels and definitely didn't purchase the Green Giant brand canned mushrooms made in
the American ones were also cheaper and a well known brand.
