Recently I bought a box of dried fruit from Costco. Upon opening a bag, I noticed that the company was located in
New York, but the product was processed in China. I will be returning the box to the store and from now on will pay
close attention to where the food I eat originated.
Buying clothes and tools made in China is one thing, but after the pet food scare, then the news that counterfeiters
were putting poisonous chemicals in some medications because it was cheaper and gave them more profits, I decided
enough is enough. I will no longer buy produce from another country, packaged food that states it was processed in
another country or non-organic meats.
We are losing control of our food supply and I would be willing to pay more for my food, or do without, rather than
support continued outsourcing of our food supply. Hershey's is moving its Oakdale plant to Mexico. I have eaten my
last Hershey product.
A recent TV program said more American parents are teaching their children Chinese as a second language because
that's where they see the future going. Does that scare anyone? Is cheaper worth the risk?
