I can't find any garlic powder that is not produced in China, whether it's a name brand, or generic brand. I'm willing to order it. Has anyone found any that is not produced in China?
Watkins have any? How about Pampered Chef?
What with all the garlic produced in Gilroy CA, there should be some available. However if they keep denying farmers water in CA, then ag products will be imported there also.
Yeah try to find a can of sliced mushrooms that aren’t from China too. Wonder what they grew them in or washed them in prior to canning. Wife brought home a can of Pennsylvania Dutchman brand canned in India. Think I’m gonna eat those too? Naw, I don’t think so...
Don’t see it in the stores I shop at, but thanx.
Thank you. Will check it out.
Even organic can come from China (or Mexico), but I’ll research it. Thanx.
All your Spice needs
sad about their water problem.
Use fresh garlic.
Hannaford finally has canned mushrooms from the USA.
Thanks - looks good.
Use the chopped garlic that comes in the plastic jars.
You can find it in the fresh veggie/fruit section of the grocery store.
Much of the fresh garlic is also from China.
I’m into fresh only. need a little planning to avoid waste
There's an 800 # at the link.
All the garlic in our neck of the woods is either from central Texas or Gilroy, CA. Never knew any came from China. Well its easy to grow, guess people could do that.
Found in my spice rack.
Tone’s Garlic Powder
Tone Bros, Inc., Ankeny, IA 50021 USA
Thanx. Will do.
Another place to try. Cool.
They have H2O.
Trader Joe’s has a policy of no food from China. Whether they have been able to fully implement it, I don’t know, but I think you can see by the labels.
Don’t be fooled by the organic label. The food could still come from China and be organic. Earthfare had some Organic Chamomile tea. In very small print, on the side of the box, it said it was from China.
Not sure if Korea, Thailand or Mexico is any better though.
If you care about getting food not produced in China, as much as I do, please call the stores.
Wife buys ours at Military Commisary, says packed in USA???
Try www.badiaspices.com. They list a Maimi address and its marked “packed in USA” They are usually in the Mexican Food section, so it might come from messico.
As an aside, if you like garlic, try elephant garlic. Those are the great big bulbs. It is not as strong as cooking garlic, about as strong as purple onion. You can use a potato peeler to shave it onto a green salad. But if you cook it, it tastes like garlicky potato.
The biggest irony is that elephant garlic is actually a variety of leek, not a true garlic.
Have you tried Whole Foods
Another one to try:
If anyone finds one that is produced in the USA, or even Italy, and can be ordered by phone, please share the info., and so will I.
I just checked mine - it’s “packaged” in the USA, but not made in the USA. It doesn’t say where it was made. (McCormack)
I've been ordering from this company for a long time. They give you the origin of their products. I checked and they have California garlic powder as well as from China and other garlic products. Their prices are always lower but you usually have to order a larger quantity (1/4 to 1 pound) rather than a 3 oz. jar. Also, a minimum $30 order.
Another reason to not buy from China, at least as much as possible:
Start calling the grocery stores - I think they’ll listen to us if we nip it in the bud.
I can hardly find Garlic that isn’t from China. The other day my grocery had frozen Okra from China. I complained. Not that it did any good, but I felt better.
Check that fine print folks, the produce dept is full of Chinese and Mexican food. Well, the whole store is full of it. And if it has a USA address close to the border, you can bet it wasn’t grown here.
Sounds good. Do you know which of their products are produced in the U.S.A.?
Hey, I just looked at my garlic powder which is Target’s brand called “Market Pantry.” No indication of country of origin. Is that legal?
That’s why we have to complain to the stores as you did. It’s bad enough we have to buy the electronics, but their food could make us sick.
It’s probably too late to stop the electronics from being made in China, but it’s early enough where we can get the stores to start carrying USA garlic and other foods again.
I called Hannaford and told them to stop carrying shrimp from China, and they DID! Probably others called, as well.
Call the store and ask them where it’s made if it doesn’t say.
I THINK the law is that if it doesn’t say, it’s supposed to be produced in our country, but I’m not sure.
I heard that most of the vitamin C we have in this country is produced in China.
“I THINK the law is that if it doesnt say, its supposed to be produced in our country, but Im not sure.”
Nope. The latest labeling implemented that Meat is supposed to be labeled, and possible fresh food. But if it’s packaged,processed, I don’t think they have to tell you where it’s from.
Q. What commodities require country of origin labeling?
A. Covered commodities include muscle cuts of beef (including veal), lamb, pork, goat, and
chicken; ground beef, ground lamb, ground pork, ground goat, and ground chicken; farm-
raised fish and shellfish; wild fish and shellfish; perishable agricultural commodities;
peanuts; ginseng, pecans and macadamia nuts.
Product of China, Packed in U.S.A.
“Our high quality dried garlic comes from soft-neck garlic grown in California.”
We stopped buying canned mushrooms for just that reason. If I *must* have mushrooms, we get fresh now. Sad, but what else are you gonna do? I don’t want to chance it.
