Recently a USDA Food inspector on TV said he had lived overseas and had personally seen the filthy conditions some countries use to raise and process foods.
“It is enough to make you throw up,” he stated. “Some workers have to wear masks as they work in these places, because the food is so rotten and filthy. 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.
Food coloring and some flavorings are often used to mask the appearance and smell, then they ship it to the USA & Canada for US to consume and feed to OUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors.
Here are some of the products and name brands this inspector cited…..
Green Giant frozen vegetables from China, and most of Europe ‘s Best brand.
China is the largest producer of garlic in the world; the U. S. is next.
“Never buy the no-name grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada.
The other stuff is grown in people poop” (even worse than chicken poop).
Buy only local honey. Much of the world’s supply of honey is shipped in huge containers from China and re-packaged here.
“Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from Vietnam, China, or the Philippines. Steinfeld’s Pickles are made in India and are just as bad!”
Another example is the generic brand of mushrooms that come from Indonesia. Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada until about 2 years ago. They are now made and packaged in China.
On a positive note, this inspector cited Arctic Gardens and Birdseye brands as okay.
No doubt this is a subject we may have to visit again, as things change. But now, for you and your family’s sake, read the labels and avoid the yucky stuff. There is no excuse now that you know.
