My wife and I were buying some Dole Mandarin oranges for our son a few months back when I noticed that the container said "Made in China". Let me get this right- Dole can't grow oranges in Florida anymore? How about Mexico?? The outsourcing of goods has gotten ridiculous!
I've been to China a few times- the factories are right next to the farms in many cases...When I'm over there, I do most anything I can to avoid eating fresh fruits and vegetables. The rivers that water the fields don't look fit to boat in, let-alone to supply water for rice or vegetables. Now, I'm feeding my 1-year old fruits from these sources?? Not good.
Please join me in doing everything you can to avoid buying Chinese food products...all political and social issues aside, it's just not safe.
