Juice made in China

Are you aware that the apple juice we are feeding our families has concentrates from China? Does anyone find this just a little alarming? After all that we know about the lead in the toys from China and the cat and dog food recalls, why would anyone feel safe drinking a juice that has been concentrated in China and imported to the U.S. to be reconstituted for us to drink?

When I went grocery shopping I checked all the bottles of juice to see where the concentrates came from, I found brand name juices also had concentrates from China. How long has this been going on? Who is making sure that we aren’t getting more than apple juice? Why does the U.S. have to import concentrates?

I will be reading my labels very carefully from now on, and if it does not say where it comes from then don’t buy it, that is my motto.
