More products recalled, and this appears to not affect the US, but who knows for sure anymore. Again, I go back to having every product that is consumable, drugs included to be labeled for the city, state, and country of origin. This is a perfect example here where the only thing we have to go on is the expiration date of the product, we need a world wide consortium to have everyone agree to label the origins of all food and drug products worldwide. Hit and miss labeling is not getting the job done. BD
I am going to repeat the above request on every post like this that I do until someone takes it to heart and it has been suggested on the Google list of items that would have an outstanding and positive effect for the entire world. BD
