I don't eat fish but if I choose any shellfish or meat I know the butcher. I buy local honey from the beekeeper. I um don't like the taste of olive oil so no biggie there. I do have some pure maple syrup but have had that for a year without using it.

New version of how many ways can you name sugar so it doesn't appear as the first or second ingredient.
We may not have melamine in our milk (this year) but our food stream has gotten so much less safe as I've watched the decades go by.
I now do not eat any meat that I don't know who raised it. And even then, I used it as "seasoning" not main course. Veggies have the main course place on my plate now.
It's good two ways to raise your own or know who did. And this goes for veggies and fruits too. 1. you know your food is safe 2. you support your local/small farmer (and thereby vote with your $$ against agribusiness)
While we are being thrifty let's not forget the old addage... you get what you pay for.

Go figure! Things are not always what they seem. That's been the result as some food producers have been watering down their products or substituting cheaper ingredients to save some cash, the FDA says www.care2.com/news/member/794189242/ 10 23079
