USDA ORGANIC...PRODUCT OF CHINA?

Apparently, quite a few packages of frozen "organic" veggies from China are now available at many local grocery stores, including PCC Natural Markets and Whole Foods. Whole Foods, the country's leader in organics, sells a variety of frozen organic produce from China - peas, spinach, asparagus - under its "365 House" brand. Whole Foods says it's proud of the organic products it sells from China. To its credit, the company puts "product of China" on the package -- something it is not required to do. The company says most of the organic produce grown in the U.S. goes to the fresh market, requiring it to look elsewhere for frozen veggies. More here.
