Yesterday my daughter told me when shopping for canned mushrooms, she found that most major brands as well as generics were all from China.  A couple weeks ago, one was still from the U.S.   This led me to find out more about this so now I know why.

I just spent part of the afternoon reading about the Food Imports from China.  For more details check out this comprehensive report from Food and Water Watch.  Click here.  You can read a shortened version or the full report.  Pretty disturbing!!
