USDA Organic/Product of China


Recommended Posts

Recent excerpt from CBC News:

Under current federal regulations, goods can be stamped with a "Product of Canada" label if 51 per cent of the production costs are Canadian. For example, companies can label their juice Canadian by adding water to imported fruit concentrate and bottling the product.

Maybe something similar is going on with your groceries.

I just made a cornish game hen with chestnut stuffing. . .

Would you believe a pigeon stuffed with spam? . . .

Would you believe a rat filled with cough drops?

USDA organic does not mean made in USA. It means certified organic under USDA standards. There are scores of USDA-approved certifying agents all over the world.
