I was wondering if anyone here avoids foods imported from certain countries.
I was at Costco today and they had a booth giving out samples of Thai House curry. It came in pouches and all you have to do is heat it up and have it with some steamed rice. This customer that was there asked the sample lady if the food was imported and the sample lady says it's made in Vancouver. I look at the pouch to read the label and it says imported, product of Thailand.
Anyways, I love curry and the samples I tried (I tried 2 of the 3 flavours, Red, Yellow curries, Green curry I didn't eat) were yum so I bought 4 pouches of Red.
But should I avoid foods manufactured in 3rd/2nd world countries? I'd be suspicious of foods and produce from China esp since the pet food recall, they seem to use pesticides, chemical fertilizers and feeds etc that are banned in most other countries...
