Here is an article by Mike Adams of www.Natural News.com that I think is worth reading regarding imported foods from China and the environment in which these foods are grown.
Many major companies import food from China, i.e., Green Giant brand. Read the label carefully. “Packed in the USA” does not mean grown in the USA. When you see “Packed in the USA” without identifying the country the food was grown, you can assume that the food processor thinks if you knew you would not buy their product, i.e., China, Southeast Asia. So read your labels carefully! It’s a matter of you having good health! —No Name Atty.

(NaturalNews) When it comes to foods, superfoods and even nutritional supplements from China, “organic” is largely a hoax. This is my opinion, of course, but I’ve been researching the issue quite extensively as the key decision maker for new products in the Natural News Store. And I’ve come to the conclusion that “organic” from China is largely a fraud. Here’s why…
First off, you’re going to be shocked to learn that there is no limit to how much mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum is allowed in “organic” products.
It’s a fact: USDA organic standards place NO LIMITS on levels of heavy metals contamination of certified organic foods. Even further, there is no limit on the contamination of PCBs, BPA and other synthetic chemicals that’s allowed in certified organic foods, superfoods and supplements.
