Re: OT - shopping note

Not sure about the warning notice, there have been so many lately.

But it is
not uncommon for anything packaged or assembled with part from foreign
countrys to paste some type of careful wording leading you to believe it was
totally from the US.

Subject: [CHAT] OT - shopping note

Is it my
imagination or did I read recently a warning about seafood
imported from Asia,
or China, which had excessive levels of toxic
chemicals?   This week the local
A&P has a freezer case set in the
middle of a central aisle with big "special"
signs.  The bin contains
packages of various seafood, most specifically
salmon.  All the 
plastic packages are emblazoned with an American flag and
words "Great American Seafood."  The salmon is large fillets - looks
three to a package - says 2 1/2 pounds - for $12.00, which is
very cheap.  On
the back of the package in small letters are the
words "Product of China."
What am I missing?
