China is a multi-million dollar country, famous for its production of everything that other countries regard as dangerous or unhealthy.
For the past few years, consumers are paying more attention to what they put in their shopping carts. Usually they check for the presence of preservatives and the nutritional value of the product, but this does not necessarily mean that the food is always healthy, especially if it comes from China.
On a label anything can be written, and customers have no way of checking what is actually in the package. So you should avoid foods in the at-risk category, and this includes products from China. The Middle Kingdom is famous for producing products that are incompatible with European and American safety and quality standards.
