Code: Select all
First proposed in 2002, the country-of-origin legislation finally took effect in full on Tuesday [Fall 2008]. All meats, fish, and fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables must be identified by their country of origin, whether by a sticker, a sign, a placard or a label. Organ meats, such as heart, liver or kidney, aren't included.
I guess you asked two questions. Supermarket tomatoes from anywhere are flavorless. I think they pick them green and ripen them with gas. Even if red they taste green. If you could pick a red tomato in Mexico and eat it right away it would be great!Are tomatos from mexico bad or what? what produce would you not buy grown in Mexico and why?
