The Chinese food processing industry is virtually unregulated. Yet, Apple & Eve buy apple concentrate from China. So when your child drinks apple juice made by Apple & Eve, read the label. It could be from China.
Apple & Eve is trading profit for safety. Urge them to stop buying apples and apple concentrate from China.
Over the past few years, pets have died from pet foods tainted with ingredients made in China. Poison has been blended into toothpastes used by children. And lead routinely shows up in toys made by top American toy manufacturers. All this is in spite of annual inspections of plants.
The fact is American companies have been lax in protecting the American public. So you should take action now. Ask Apple & Eve to stop buying apple juice concentrate from China for their products -- including juice boxes that your children drink.
UPDATE 11/4/14: Some of you have asked where it is listed that Apple & Eve get apple juice from China. It says it right on their website! Here is an example of a product with juice from China: http://www.appleandeve.com/juice/100-apple-juice-2/ "Ingredients: 100% Apple Juice (Filtered Water sufficient to reconstitute Apple Juice concentrate), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Calcium Gluconate, Calcium Lactate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin E Acetate. Concentrate from USA, Argentina and China."
