Since when did we start importing fish from China?
Charlie and I went to buy salmon at Walmart last week (maybe that was our first mistake), and the salmon I normally buy wasn’t there. Instead, there was a different package with basically the same contents. I was a little unsure as to whether or not to buy it, since I hadn’t bought it before. I looked the packaging over and noticed something I have never seen on an animal product: “Made in China.”
Isn’t China synonymous with like, the worst pollution in the world, unsafe living and working conditions and everything else that is wrong with the world? (Probably mutant fish.) Do we not have two perfectly good oceans which are quite a bit closer to us than China? Admittedly, I live in Missouri, and we don’t have easy access to an ocean. HOWEVER, China is not a shorter drive than from here to the east or west coast.
It just seems a little absurd. Fish from China? And today my coworker and I were talking about it and found “Product of Thailand” stamped on packaged Chicken of the Sea salmon. Lovely. Maybe this is all a part of China’s devious plan to take over the United States – one fish at a time.
