producing farm in the USA was sold in 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, Eckrich, Krakus, Cudahy,
Premium Hams, Cook's, Gwaltney. The same with many chickens. They
can now be shipped there, 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 – and, by far - to the requirements here.
We recently learned that Starkist Tuna is now owned by
Korea, and is in big conflict with the U. S. concerning quality, safety,
and records, 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
came from China? Also, I had just returned home from buying
Albertson's 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of
one? Sure enough, on the top of the bags, it read "farm raised", and
on the bottom in small print it said:" China "… read all the way
Recently a Food inspector on TV... said he had lived
overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised
and processed in. It is enough to make you throw-up. Some foreign
workers have to wear masks as they work in these places, because the
food is so rotten and filthy, it makes them want to 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.

Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly
marked from USA or Canada, the other stuff is grown in people’s… dung
(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.
bacteria. Doesn't work anyway, big scam.
Watch out for packages which state "prepared for", "packed
by" or "imported by". We don't understand the lack of mandatory
labeling, especially the produce.
The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item
in the store.

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.
Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears in a plastic
jar that come from China.
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 dung.
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!
Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came
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.
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 without.
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
8% of their North American exports. Then they will at least have to
ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are
are intelligent, and NOBODY can take us for granted.
Start reading labels more closely and buy something else even if
it cost a few cents more...
