Thanks to our food importing corporations,U.S.D.A.,and Food and Drug Administration, now the U.S. also lacks even the most basic sense of conscience. To continue to import any food products from China where it is standard fare to have people adulterate the food for no other reason than to get more money for it in spite of it being poisonous is frightening. This is a practice that could not have escaped our government or the corporations that import the food while they were investigating the feasability of such trade deals. Yet, they neither did anything to protect from getting such food nor did they choose to test for it prior to it being sold in the United States for consumption.
