Economy / Your "Raised in USA" meat is probably processed in China
« Last post by Glock32 on May 22, 2016, 05:49:52 PM »
This was totally news to me until I read this thread over at the AK Files.  Evidently, due to USDA regulations, it is cheaper for meat packagers to ship meat slaughtered in the USA over to China for processing, then ship it back to the USA for sale.

Another poster in the thread added this info about apples harvested in Washington state:

Quote
Washington apples (my states largest agricultural crop) export fresh apples 2000 miles south, to mexico, where they are washed, labeled with the "Proudly Grown in Wa" sticker, and then trucked BACK to Washington..no lie. I was told it had to do more with trucking contracts and making $$ per mile of transport, than cheap farm/packing labor..eitherway, its pretty chewed up IMHO.

There's that word again...malaise...Progs the world over create it and call it "progress", all it breeds is the seeds that eventually destroys itself. Unfortunately a lot of misery and death has to happen in the interim.

Yeah, 100% true, won't matter a damn even if they go...

It's like sending a Demon to bible school...anybody seriously think it'll make a difference?  Need an enforcement mechanism with teeth, something that hurts, got it?

Wonder if this judge could give the republican members of the house and senate ethic lessons.


The only material difference between them and Progs is some Pubbies would pretend to be chastised while the rest would pretend they were ethical all along.
