I just found this article. How absurd:http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/06/08/africa/food.php
China and their motives are so transparent. They are embarrassing themselves. Who do they think they're kidding? They're banning such things as dried fruit imported from the US because it's contaminated with "sulfur dioxide", LOL, a common preservative for dried fruit, that, yea, might not be that healthy, but come on! And "bacteria"?
That's not to say that foods cannot have bacteria, but I wonder what they really found. I think you can find bacteria on low levels in just about everything if you really want to find something. I'm sure nothing they produce has any, right? This is so "beneath their standards".
They're food is so pure and healthy....they need to protect themselves from US food, right? What a bunch of idiots! In fact, our government and theirs are both so full of idiots that they should be best friends.....wait, I think they are best friends, which is how we got into this mess in the first place. But nonetheless, they are really striking back. Creepy...utterly creepy! I cannot stop laughing at their tactics.
