Many Food Items Not Labeled As Made In China, Are Made In China
Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Korea, Japan, the Filipines as well as North American and European manufacturers are making food & drug products in China and elsewhere containing ingredients from mainland China known to be contaminated with toxic, non-food substances such as glycol and melamine. Millions of children in China and around the world have been sickened by these poisons, and some have died.
You can't always tell from the labels what is in these products or where they came from. Corporate "beards" can easily be set up anywhere in the world to provide cover for Chinese companies under fire. This allows them to dump contaminated product on unsuspecting consumers in nations around the world. They can continue to sell deliberately poisoned foods simply by disguising their source and contents. If they're willing to deliberately poison our food & drugs, why would they care what they put on the labels? They lie, just to sell us poison, and make their fortunes. They are the worst sort of criminals. And we don't even know who they are, these madmen who are poisoning our kids.
A product may be wholly made in China, entirely of Chinese ingredients, and yet labelled only as "Made in Taiwan," "Product of Singapore," "Manufactured in the Phillippines," or "Distributed by" some company name with a Bangkok, Djakarta or Kuala Lumpur address. Without a full investigation, which is not happening now, it is impossible to say what comes from where, who really made it, or what is in it. Bon appetit and rotsa ruck.
Short of an all-out international ban with rigid enforcement and aggressive investigations in every country of the world, nothing can stop this global attack by Chinese communist greed and barbarism on the innocent citizens of the more civilised countries who have naively allowed access to their markets to a rogue nation run by brutal, amoral communist crooks and killers. Remember, the Chinese Red Army still owns or controls most of the businesses there. And the army is run by family and cronies of the top people in the Chinese communist government. So we are financing the Chinese war machine even as we poison ourselves. In chaos, there is opportunity, as Sun Tzu said, in "The Art Of War."
Our own corporate rulers and their political puppets can only see the potential for tremendous profits for them in China. As seen by their unqualified, unethical and uncaring support for the corporate-communist Beijing Olympics recently, they simply don't care how the Chinese communist government treats its' neighbours and its' own people, or even the citizens of this country. There really is no difference between the players in this conspiracy of cupidity. Until we tear down or fix both systems, they will go on poisoning us for profit with tobacco and fatty, sugary, salty foods, contaminated meats, fish and produce, and toxic toothpaste, milk, biscuits, candies, etc, etc, etc.
Right now, we need to shut down the immediate threat: On-purpose poisoning & export of toxic foods by China. The oppressive, murderous, corrupt, incompetent, amoral, sociopathic communist Chinese government and their wholly owned corporate subsidiaries can never, ever be trusted again. They must be swept away by the Chinese people before we can do business with China again. Then we need to work on our own corporate and political criminals. The jails should be full by next Halloween. BOOOO!!!!

"Nowhere to Hide from Unsafe Food?"
Yay McBush! Four More Years!
' Country-of-origin labeling for food was actually supposed to have taken effect several years ago, per the 2002 Farm Bill. But in classic form, the Bush administration has delayed the implementation of the new rules for everything except seafood (which is still subject to a few disturbing exceptions) until October 2008. If it weren’t for Dubya, we’d also know where all of our beef, lamb, pork, fish, fruits, vegetables, and peanuts had come from. Still, that wouldn’t help folks who now want to avoid, say, pet food or toothpaste with Chinese-made ingredients. And at this point, it may be safer to just assume that all processed foods contain a few. '
"Avoiding 'made in China' labels isn't easy"
Candy-poisoning goes corporate, and international.
' None of the sweets in the candy aisle said "Made in China," but most are likely made with at least one ingredient that originated there, said William Hubbard, a former U.S. Food and Drug Administration official. Candy wrappers typically list just the U.S. distributor of the products, so label readers can't determine the origin of the vanillin found in a Nestle Crunch bar, the carageenan in a Baby Ruth or the gum arabic in a pack of Mentos. Those three ingredients, and numerous other flavoring and preservative additives, commonly come from Chinese companies, Hubbard said. "The cocoa might come from another country and the sugar might be American, so you're not going to get a country of origin on that product," Hubbard said. Companies in China produce about 80 percent of the world's wheat gluten, common in most breads, cakes and cookies, and 80 percent of its sorbic acid, a preservative used in just about everything, he said.'

"'Made in Canada' - via China"
Wait! We can't even trust CANADA, now???!!!
' The bad news is that food labels don't tell the whole story. A host of Chinese imports are hiding behind "Made in Canada" labels, from the freeze-dried strawberries in your cereal to the wheat gluten in your hamburger buns. "Made in Canada" simply means that 51 per cent of the production cost was incurred in Canada; the ingredients could come from anywhere, and increasingly they come from China. For example, manufacturers can import apple juice concentrate from China - for about one-fifth the cost of Canadian concentrate - add water to it in Canada, and mark it "Made in Canada." "We eat food from China every day, we just don't know about it," says Dr. Keith Warriner, an assistant professor of food science at the University of Guelph. Canadians ate $430-million worth of food from China last year, and as China's economic power grows so does its reach into our supermarkets, our kitchens - even our churches. Canada imported $9.5-million worth of communion wafers from China last year, along with $113-million worth of frozen fish fillets and $28-million worth of apple juice. "A Canadian producer can source its supplies for cents [in China] rather than for dollars here," Dr. Warriner explains. '
"Food from China: Can you trust it?"
"Expert" now means "clueless." Hey, it's a living.
' "Cocoa? From Canada?" he smirks. Kennedy, co-director of the National Center for Food Protection and Defense, a Homeland Security agency based at the University of Minnesota, said the cocoa came from elsewhere but was shipped to Canada, processed into chocolate and sent here. Its true origin is not listed. Even the experts can't be sure where our food comes from. And even if some records don't show it, more and more is coming from China, where government authorities have acknowledged that the food chain is rife with fake and sometimes hazardous ingredients. The cocoa record is an example of transshipment, a way for food suppliers to wash away the true origin of their product simply by shipping it through a third country. And, owing to a shortage of inspectors, most everything else was simply waved through, the agency admits. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspects less than 1 percent of all imports and tests even less, according to William Hubbard, a former associate director at the agency who now lobbies for more funding and inspections. It's not just food. China is the world's largest producer of antibiotics, responsible for 80 percent of the world's supply of some forms of penicillin, according to an analyst. Not surprisingly, low prices have fueled the rise of big agriculture in China. Citric acid sells for 90 cents per kilogram in China today, or just more than a third of the ubiquitous food ingredient's price 12 years ago when it was primarily made in the United States and Europe, according to Leo Hepner, a consultant based in London. "When food gets that cheap, you really wonder how much of the ingredients are authentic and how much are some cheaper substitute," said Jean Kinsey, co-director of the University of Minnesota's Food Science Center.

"Chinese Chemicals Flow Unchecked Onto World Drug Market "
And "honor" now means what, in China?
' In January, Honor International Pharmtech was accused of shipping counterfeit drugs into the United States. Even so, the Chinese chemical company — whose motto is “Thinking Much of Honor” — was openly marketing its products in October to thousands of buyers here at the world’s biggest trade show for pharmaceutical ingredients. Other Chinese chemical companies made the journey to the annual show as well, including one manufacturer recently accused by American authorities of supplying steroids to illegal underground labs and another whose representative was arrested at the 2006 trade show for patent violations. Also attending were two exporters owned by China’s government that had sold poison mislabeled as a drug ingredient, which killed nearly 200 people and injured countless others in Haiti and in Panama. Yet another chemical company, Orient Pacific International, reserved an exhibition booth in Milan, but its owner, Kevin Xu, could not attend. He was in a Houston jail on charges of selling counterfeit medicine for schizophrenia, prostate cancer, blood clots and Alzheimer’s disease, among other maladies. While these companies hardly represent all of the nearly 500 Chinese exhibitors, more than from any other country, they do point to a deeper problem: Pharmaceutical ingredients exported from China are often made by chemical companies that are neither certified nor inspected by Chinese drug regulators, The New York Times has found. Because the chemical companies are not required to meet even minimal drug-manufacturing standards, there is little to stop them from exporting unapproved, adulterated or counterfeit ingredients. The substandard formulations made from those ingredients often end up in pharmacies in developing countries and for sale on the Internet, where more Americans are turning for cheap medicine. In Milan, The Times identified at least 82 Chinese chemical companies that said they made and exported pharmaceutical ingredients — yet not one was certified by the State Food and Drug Administration in China, records show. Nonetheless, the companies were negotiating deals at the pharmaceutical show, where suppliers wooed customers with live music, wine and vibrating chairs. One of them was the Wuxi Hexia Chemical Company. When The Times showed Yan Jiangying, a top Chinese drug regulator, a list of 186 products being advertised by the company, including active pharmaceutical ingredients and finished drugs, Ms. Yan said, “This is definitely against the law.” Yet in China, chemical manufacturers that sell drug ingredients fall into a regulatory hole. Pharmaceutical companies are regulated by the food and drug agency. Chemical companies that make products as varied as fertilizer and industrial solvents are overseen by other agencies. The problem arises when chemical companies cross over into drug ingredients. “We have never investigated a chemical company,” said Ms. Yan, deputy director of policy and regulation at the State Food and Drug Administration. “We don’t have jurisdiction.” China’s health officials have known of this regulatory gap since at least the mid-1990s, when a chemical company sold a tainted ingredient that killed nearly 100 children in Haiti. But Chinese regulatory agencies have failed to cooperate to stop chemical companies from exporting drug products. In 2006, at least 138 Panamanians died or were disabled after another Chinese chemical company sold the same poisonous ingredient, diethylene glycol, which was mixed into cold medicine. China has an estimated 80,000 chemical companies, and the United States Food and Drug Administration does not know how many sell ingredients used in drugs consumed by Americans. '.
