Where Our Food Comes From

So if a product is not labeled at the grocery store, how do we know if it came from China or other places where there has been recent cause for concern?

Until the law goes into effect experts say to look for home grown foods like chicken, eggs, milk, potatoes and oranges. As far as common imports, bananas and garlic as well as about 16% of our beef.

A consumer alert on toothpaste is now expanding, this time it deals with DentFresh Fluoride Mint Toothpaste made in China. The US Government say the product may contain a poisonous chemical used in anti-freeze. You might remember, last Friday hundreds of boxes of counterfeit Colgate toothpaste were also recalled for the same reason.

We're being warned to immediately stop using the product.
