Tainted OJ

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

First, i find out that a lot of out honey is imported, now I find out that 26% of our orange juice is also imported. What's going on?
I just saw the ABC news report on a chemical (a pesticide that is illegal to use in this country but ok in others) was found in some orange juice. Unfortunately, the source of the info wouldn't say which brand. It also showed that most of out OJ is mixed with OJ from other countries. I have never thought to look at the back of the carton for anything other than calorie content. but, sure enough, there it was. My orange juice was made in the US and brazil.

Now, apparently the FDA has done tests and found very low levels of this pesticide, so they are saying it's still safe to drink, but it again makes me wonder, what on earth are we eating?/
