Food Poisoning Outbreaks From Imported Foods Have Gotten More Frequent, CDC
Mar 19, 2012 — The report noted that part of the reason for the growth in outbreaks related to imported food is an ongoing trend towards higher levels of food imports, especially from Asia. "The American food safety system has its flaws, of course, but many other countries' systems are in even worse shape." We deserve to know into what products the 4.9 Billion dollars worth of ingredients imported from China every year are going. Not right for Kellogg's, for example, to say Made in USA when many of their vitamins used for their products including kids cereal are actually ingredients from China.
Would parents feed this to their children if they knew the truth? Consumers deserve the right to transparent labeling so we can make decisions for our families as to whether or not we want to consume products that contain ingredients from China. Let's get COOL together. Country of Origin Labeling. Please help spread the word!!
