- Canada's inspectors seem to be on the same wave length of the FDA, which is allow Chinese products into North America without the controls place on Canadian and American products. It has been claimed by the Canadian government, that tainted food products and other non-food products cannot be send back to China to the original producer. The Canadian government can only force a recall on the Canadian companies who have purchased the products from China. This was their excuse when the bad tires from China became an issue in Canada. As for the consumers, we have no recourse legally concerning the tires or for that matter any product that comes outside the North American grid. (Posted on August 13, 2007, 11:27 am Nancy Clarke)
- No, there is not a shortage of wheat in America. In fact it is just the opposite - there is a glut of wheat primarily because most Nations outside of the US refuse to purchase our transgenic engineered crops designed to withstand larger quantities of pesticides that will blow up an insect's stomach - you can imagine what it is doing to us. Since the Monsanto Monster our US Government has taken control of how our crops should be engineered, grown, and sold, it has become excruciatingly taxing to any farmers refusing to grow the garbage, and those that do pay dearly, and they are forced to look to other countries that haven't been tainted by Monsanto, not Melamine. We're also pursuing this absurd quest to use corn for fuel and now most of us can barely afford food because more farmers are being pressured into growing what the US Government demands, rather than what is good for the farmers, the consumers and the earth, and it is driving our own food products prices out of everyone's reach, and killing thousands of species the food chain is dependent on as well - we will not be far behind.

- Poultry and poultry products from the states of Virginia and Nebraska have been banned from import to some Asian countries. A report that was released by the United States FDA said that avian influenza was reported to be infecting fowl in those states.
