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.

My latest scare is about Chinese FISH imports. The fish being sent to us from China is so gross that the FDA is actually rejecting some shipments!! For once the FDA is doing something right!

"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."

Here's the story on FISH imports from China (warning: this information may impair your ability to buy fish at the grocery store):

Ugh. That is so gross. I try not to eat any farmed fish or seafood. Alaskan salmon, wild mahi mahi and Alaskan crab are about all I eat now.

So why is the US importing fish? Why aren't we getting our own, or, importing from others? After the whole contaminated pet food mess a few months back, I'm not too surprised at this next batch of bad stuff from China.
It makes me wonder if the Chinese are eating the same fish they send over here? If so, I feel sorry for them, if not, well, it makes since to keep the good stuff for your own, and ship off the crap to others to make a buck.
check out www.seafoodwatch.org for the safest and most humane fish to eat and buy.

The answer to your question ("why") is the usual answer: MONEY.

Thanks for the link.
