Tainted Chinese Imports Common

In Four Months, FDA Refused 298 Shipments
The first seven lines are from an article by Rick Weiss who is a Washinton Post Staff Writer
 

“Dried apples preserved with a cancer-causing chemical”.

“Frozen catfish laden with banned antibiotics”.

“Scallops and sardines coated with putrefying bacteria”.

“Mushrooms laced with illegal pesticides”.

“These were among the 107 food imports from China that the Food and Drug Administration detained at U.S. ports just last month, agency documents reveal, along with more than 1,000 shipments of tainted Chinese dietary supplements, toxic Chinese cosmetics and counterfeit Chinese medicines”.

“For years, U.S. inspection records show, China has flooded the United States with foods unfit for human consumption. And for years, FDA inspectors have simply returned to Chinese importers the small portion of those products they caught — many of which turned up at U.S. borders again, making a second or third attempt at entry”.

“Now the confluence of two events — the highly publicized contamination of U.S. chicken, pork and fish with tainted Chinese pet food ingredients and recent resumption of high-level economic and trade talks with China — has activists and members of Congress demanding that the United States tell China it is fed up”.

And now MY comments:

If they stopped 298 in four months, that would be 894 in a year (averaged) I can’t help but wonder how many they DIDN’T CATCH!

You will sadly remember the pet foods incident that over the past months claimed many of peoples family pets. I have a friend who lost a dog to the poison in the dog food. When the pet food problem first surfaced, I had written a short article for another site that I write for (not one of mine) and posed the scenario that follows here:

The Chinese or any country for that matter who imports food stuffs to the United States is almost free to include within those imports any poison, drug or unknown agent that could cause mass death, sickness and hysteria in the U.S.A. An agent for a foriegn government, say Iraq, Iran or any one of a number of countries that are not on our party list who would like to do us in, could easily include a non-detectable (by the equipment we use) substance within the food.

If you think this is conjecture on my part, just read some of the news releases put out by the CIA or NSA etc regarding the ADVERTISED ways that this could happen. Remember the articles about nerve gases, mustard gas, serin etc that Saddam had and used on his own people? Think of how something placed into our food supply, drugs or something seemingly unlikly as toothpaste, baby formula, spices or sugar that would be possibly distributed nationawide would effect the country.I feel sure sure the CIA would have the means to do something similar to our enemies should the need arise to protect the United States. If they do not, they should have!

What can be done on our soil to control this? Well, for starters I think closer monitoring of imports, controls on illegal immigration that would catch those coming into the country under the guise of migrant workers who would have the ability to spread our lettuce, grapes and melons that are grown here in the states with a poisoness or mind altering substances. We could also put an immediate stop on importation of goods, what ever they may be, from companies who have been caught sending tainted product and after a specified number of cases that are caught, cease importing from the country that houses the firms found to be out of compliance.

This is now and could easily become a more serious problem. The possibilty for many more people to be killed than were lost in the 9/11 tragedy is easily seen.  It is incumbant upon us all to write our Congresspersons and The President to take action to control this serious problem.
