My sister-in-law sent me this useful bit of info that I thought would be good to pass along.
With all the food and pet products coming from China, it is best to make sure you read labels when buying at the grocery store. Walmart especially, doesn't print where it is made, only where it is distributed from. You need to read the bar code to track it's origin. The first three digits on the code will tell you where it is from.
Buy USA and Canadian, make sure the code starts with a "0". Made in China the first three digits are 690-695. The code in the photo example indicates that it is made in Taiwan.
An easy place to start when trying to help this economy - try to buy USA when you can.
