Price rules is seafoods as in everything else .China has come to the point that they would rather play politics rather than regulate and have pushed their products to others claiming they are pure and high quality but other countries have figured out just how dangerous their foods can be .

Again folks - as Iíve stated previously - ancient societies, that have risen and fallen half-a-dozen times, do not give a God damn about people/animals. Chinaís just the latest. Look at the history of places like Egypt and India and youíll see that human life means nothing. Thousands die with little reason and they all (3rd and 4th world countries) take it in stride.At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you."

At long last, food labeling law set to take effect
Still, some expect confusion over what must be labeled

Walk into a grocery store after Sept. 30, and youíll be more likely to find out whether that head of lettuce you are buying was grown in Mexico or the United States. If you pick up a bag of lettuce, however, donít necessarily expect the same information.
After years of wrangling, so-called "country of origin labeling" is expected to take effect at the end of the month, requiring most food retailers to disclose where many types of meat, produce and other food products come from. The new rules aim to make it easier for regular consumers to know whether their food was imported or not, much like they can find out whether the toys they buy for their children were made domestically or overseas.
But while the regulations will provide customers with more information about where their food comes from, there also is likely to be some confusion, as consumers ó and experts ó work to understand exactly what is covered under the regulations, and what isnít.
