As much as I love China I wouldn't buy anything from there now, just to risky, and think what the population in China is exposed to, just heartbreaking, if anyone watched the pollinators, you have a good indication of how they are self destructing so sad.

Litha, I agree with you. Despite in prosperity, people in China has been eating plenty of toxic foods themselves and exposed to highly polluted environment for the last two decades. It is the responsibility of our FDA to take strict control of all products imported from China and other developing countries.
