When buying fresh garlic, do not purchase any garlic from CHINA. They are contaminated beyond belief. Pesticides banned in USA are used to cultivate them, Soil is contaminated due to excessive industrial production throughout the country, all sorts of unethical practices are used to produce volumes and volumes of garlic.
I tried to contact Spice World Inc on the web www.spiceworldinc and their site is temporarily down? I tried www.spiceworld.com and the same response.
Be careful when buying bottled garlic, as it may contain garlic from China.
I found out that Whole Foods sells USA garlic.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE AMERICAN GARLIC:
-Taste more robust
-Roots and stems are showing
Be weary when going to food establishment, they need to cut cost so who knows what type of garlic their using. Garlic from China is so much cheaper.
We are developing a petition to notify Gilroy Ca, the garlic capital of the USA at one time to let them know there is a opportunity to do a market blitz notifying Americans to buy garlic from Gilroy, CA
The ailments associated with contamination can take different forms, so we do have a choice to discontinue use of garlic from China.
Let us know if your interested in signing our petition by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
