I just got an email from a reader suggesting I was making up the problems with organic products and non-organic products from India. You want proof folks..here it is...I have the original documents in my files still. This same problem exists with products from China as well.
I am printing this from the report issued to me by the FDA on some samples I had ordered. This company ships from India now as we speak.Several other companies who advertise on the net buy from this company.
I never saw my samples, they were taken by the FDA and refused. I cannot list the company because of legal issues but this is from the notice I received. These samples were tested and failed severely. These were certified organic samples with legal certification from their country. I write these blogs from experience...not just talk.
