CHINA IS NOT OUR FRIEND! I repeat, The CHINESE GOVERNMENT is not our friend! They want to destroy us and they may well be doing it through our food, as well as our drugs! SO YES, READ THE LABEL!
PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY and read to the very bottom. It's very important for all of us!
SMITHFIELD FARMS, the largest pork producing farm in the USA, was sold last September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there, before being sent back here. This includes labels of: Morrell, Eckric, Krakus, Cudahy, Premium Hams, Cook’s and Gwaltney
THE SAME WITH MANY CHICKENS. They can be shipped to China, but when they come back all that needs to be labeled is that they WERE RAISED IN THE USA, not that they were processed in China!
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 our requirements for cleanliness.
BAD FOOD! I certainly will not feed my family anything from China, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, India and Asia in general. They just don’t have the food safety regulations we have.
We recently learned that STAR-KIST TUNA is now owned by Korea, and is in conflict with the U.S., concerning quality, safety and records about safety, which Korea refuses to produce!
Read several articles on Google about this . . . and even one that was defending the eating of TILAPIA, said to avoid the fish that comes from China?
In general, farm raised fish should not be eaten because of the high concentration of antibiotics they are fed to prevent diseases due to being tightly confined with other fish.
Buy wild caught fish from North America, Hawaii or New Zealand. Read all the way
Recently A Food Inspector On TV Said, he had lived overseas and has seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in . . . It’s enough to make you throw up.
MANY OF THEIR FISH ON FISH FARMS ARE FED RAW SEWAGE DAILY. He said he has seen so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that he would "NEVER" eat any of it.
They raise this filth, put some food coloring and some flavorings on it, then they ship it to the USA & Canada for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors.
They ship it to you to buy and poison your families and friends.
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.
*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 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 an employee. Watch out for packages which state "prepared for", "packed by" or "imported by". We don't understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially on 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?
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 comes 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 chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken poop. Is this what you want to feed your family?
If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you'll be alarmed and sick! 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 are canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came 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 and most are 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!
And, at least 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?
We can do it ourselves . . . Buy CANADA and the UNITED STATES.
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’ll be surprised at how dependent we have become on Chinese products and you’ll be amazed at what you can do without!
I WILL NOT knowingly feed my family anything from China, Vietnam, Philippines or the far east in general, and certain Walkernly not farmed fish. Our FDA, with all their faults is many times better than n countries in the far east. With the possible exception of Japan. China is not our friend, and I will not take a chance by eating anything they export to us. There is no telling what they might put in some of the food we import.
If someone says you are full of it . . . do you want them to be 100% accurate?
World Health Organization, South-East Asia Region . . . has the second highest burden of foodborne diseases per population, behind Africa. However, in terms of absolute numbers, more people living in the WHO South-East Asia Region fall ill and die from foodborne diseases every year than in any other Region, with more than 150 million cases and 175,000 deaths a year. Some 60 million children under the age of 5 fall ill and 50,000 die from foodborne diseases in the South-East Asia Region each year.
