Beware of these foods from China

In 2009, spurred by the worst bout of food poisoning he’d ever experienced from consuming a bowl of ice cream on a hot day in Shanghai, China, then-trade consultant Mitchell Weinberg created New York-based Inscatech — a global network of food spies who scour supply chains around the world hunting for evidence of food industry fraud and malpractice.

In the eight years since he founded  Inscatech, Weinberg identified China as an epicenter of food fraud, where baby formula was laced with melamine and rat meat was sold as lamb. He said: “Statistically we’re uncovering fraud about 70 percent of the time, but in China it’s very close to 100 percent. It’s pervasive, it’s across food groups, and it’s anything you can possibly imagine.” (Independent)

Isabelle Z. reports for Natural News, Nov. 30, 2018, that a lot of food sold throughout the world comes from China, but the standards continue to leave much to be desired because Chinese food regulations are notoriously lax, and widespread government corruption means that the few regulations they do have are rarely upheld.

Below is a list of foods from China we should shun:

  1. Fish: China’s rivers and lakes are heavily polluted. More than half of the tilapia and cod that are sold in the U.S. were grown on a Chinese fish farm, and it’s not uncommon to find heavy metals like lead or mercury in those fish.
  2. Rice: A lot of the rice sold in North America comes from China. But China has been exporting “plastic rice” that is little more than a mix of resin and potato.
  3. Garlic: A third of the garlic sold in the U.S. originate from China, which has been found to be laced with methyl bromide and other pesticides.
  4. Apple juice: Chinese apple juice was singled out by the Alternative Daily for several reasons: (1) The U.S. government had restricted the import of apples from China for a time, which indicates major problems; (2) A few years ago, U.S. health officials discovered that apple juice imported from China contained antifreeze; (3) Chinese soil is laced with toxins.
  5. Green peas: Counterfeit green peas from China have been found which are made using sodium metabisulfite, soy, a green dye, and small amounts of real green peas.
  6. Mushrooms: Chinese mushrooms have prompted safety concerns around the world because formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide are added to make the mushrooms appear fresher. Read labels carefully: as much as a third of the processed mushrooms that are consumed in America originate in China.

Antifreeze in apple juice. Plastic rice, counterfeit peas. Nice. I don’t understand why “we” would feel the need to buy food from China. We produce plenty of food here. Peas are easy enough to grow. At least half of the apples grown in orchards here go to waste. The growers can’t find anyone to pick them, it’s labor-intensive and therefore too close to actual work. I know, the Odor has decided that the brutally repressive, atheistic, state-capitalist model of China Inc. will be ascendant, to fill the vacuum left by the destruction of Western Christian Civilization. So buy their plastic… Read more »

Thank you for this information, Dr. Eowyn. I had no idea about this.

A few years back thousands of US cats & dogs were poisoned by plastic in the pet food made in China. Be very careful in your food choices for your self and your pets.

Ever since it was originally reported that Smithfields had sold to the Chinese–I quit purchasing their brand name. It is rather shocking to read that they also label under several other brands, such as Armour. I must admit, after reading the article, I was forced to take some Ondansetron (for nausea or vomiting) in order to quell the distress in my stomach. It really sickens me to know that whether the Chinese are making their own people sick by feeding them poisons, or they are foisting off tainted food products to the rest of the world–it really is a sick… Read more »

If you look closely at your prescription medications you will no doubt find most of them are made in China. They pay about $.30/hr. for workers. It’s a place where all the workers are running other scams to survive.

The only concern of these corporations is cheap labor.

I rarely eat seafood to begin with, which for me, comes mostly from China, or somewhere along the Pacific.

Fukushima is the other reason, with God knows how much radiation poisoning is present in the fish.

I knew about the rice years ago and checked my source from Sam’s Club since I have 16 buckets of rice stored in one room…it’s grown in Arkansas.

Thank you for this most informative article. I have had to go to the E.R. three times for food poisoning in my life (the last time was over 20 years ago), and the last time I almost died. Let me tell you, food poisoning is a terrible thing to endure, let alone die from. (It has been speculated that U.S. President Harding died from it). Well, the U.S. used to have standards, until we sold out, I guess. Dr. Ted Broer and Mike Adams the Health Ranger have warned against processed foods, but, as time is precious for me and… Read more »
