    I see the free trade agreement with Korea is nearly ready for signing and then she is advocating one with Japan next. I certainly will be taking far more notice of where food and other things come from in the future.

    Whatever is wrong with their food, it does not appear to be detrimental to the Chinese. Any complaints been made about the food sold in Asian food outlets, cos i have not heard any. You have as much chance of food poisoning in NZ as anywhere else.

    Some very dangerous stuff has been found in Chinese medicine, like arsenic and heavy metals, some outlets of Asian foodstuffs here in Auckland have had problems also. So far I have heard no complaints about food imports in our supermarkets.

    Yep, saw Target and all the Asian food outlets around Auckland with E hygiene certificates and they were either hiding them or showing false A’s. I would not eat in a place with an E certification.

    Lemin,what you say about dangerous stuff found in Chinese Medicines also applies here.My late husband was put on a prescription that has rat poison in it.Forgot its name,but I nearly chocked when the Dr.told us,laughingly about it.But it did him good though.As for their products being imported to NZ,most NZs will be running around naked and starving in the future,if they deny China’s products.They will be the only ones to feed and clothe us,as our greedy producers are all going off shore.More and more every week,is leaving.

    Warfarin is its name Mona. used to thin the blood. I have a relation who has to take it if she is going to travel more than three hours at a time. My neighbour takes it as well. Better start learning how to beat flax into linen. I could make ponchos from my blanket store, I spose. Lol

    Joybel the food they were making the egg yolk was from some form of chemical..its going to be on again next sun night.
    yes some of our meds here have not nice things in them and warafin is one of them im told.
    definately not against chinese people just how they go about things and pay workers slack money for long hours of work.
