Fish Imports From China Increase, and are YUCKY

I'm convinced that the business people of China would just as soon poison Americans as feed us. I read the other day that now 75% of the garlic on grocery store shelves is coming from China! Yikes. I EAT garlic.

"China became the leading exporter of seafood to the U.S. in 2004 – and amounts are rising fast. Chinese imports were up 14 percent in 2005 and 23 percent in 2006. This year, so far, they are up 34 percent over 2006."
