Is it safe to eat garlic from China?
Similarly one may ask, what is wrong with garlic from China?
The common garlic disease is blue mold rot, particularly noted when stored in sealed containers. The plant is harvested when the leaves die out.
Similarly, is it safe to eat food imported from China? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has done little to address the growing tide of food imports from China, despite a well-documented pattern of chemical adulteration and unsafe drug residues. The FDA inspects less than 2 percent of imported food and barely visits Chinese food manufacturers.
Besides, is Chinese garlic grown in human feces?
It is possible that sewage is used as fertilizer, as it is in many parts of the world although there is no evidence that garlic in China is fertilized in this fashion. In any case, there is no problem with this, human waste is as effective a fertilizer as is animal waste.
Is it safe to eat ginger from China?
Chinese ginger showed traces of a chemical, aldicarb sulfoxide, that is not approved for the root and is a notorious water pollutant, according to the agency. Chinese ginger also has been a perennial problem for the agency, and in 2007, pesticide residue findings sparked a statewide warning to consumers to avoid it.
