Consumers Don't Trust "Made in China" Food

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Nov 17, 2008


SAN JOSE The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently imposed stricter regulations on food imported from China: most food from China must be inspected by a third party before being shipped to the United States. The Sing Tao Daily reports that this regulation has caused Chinese supermarkets in the United States to suffer from product price increases. Chen of Lion supermarket in San Jose said the inspection takes over a month, which makes it difficult to import food from China. After the tainted milk scandal in China, the market's food inventory has been reduced by one third while prices increased on average by 20 percent. Thuy Ho, a Vietnamese customer in the supermarket, said she tries to avoid buying food imported from China, though her Chinese-American husband and mother-in-law sometimes buy Chinese food. Chen said most of his customers are Vietnamese, Chinese and Indian Americans. He said the lack of trust about food imported from China has negatively affected his supermarkets business.
