Most of you don't seem to know that we can't even guarantee the food produced here in America With all the rules, regulations, and better living conditions overall...our food often is contaminated. There has been numerous recalls of late for different kinds of produce contaminated with E-Coli.
Butterball Turkeys is as of today being investigated for his gross treatment of its turkeys, ""Butterball allowed a culture of cruelty and abuse to fester at its company-owned factory farms," alleged Runkle. "Before ending up in restaurants and grocery stores, turkeys killed for Butterball are routinely crowded into filthy warehouses, neglected to die from infected, bloody wounds, and thrown, kicked, and beaten by factory farm workers."
Read the whole article here. The Butterball company is located in South Carolina.
I have seen various undercover videos of how cows, pigs, chickens are kept in the United States. That is why I have my own chickens and just bought a goat for milk. Our food is not safe in the US....we want to assume it is because we have this concept about our country. Our food is picked by farm workers just like in foreign countries. Most of those workers have not had health exams. They may be sick, have TB, or have inadequate access to wash their hands. These huge companies process many thousands of birds daily. All these big companies are not following inspections as they should.
In the Butterball investigation, one vet warned the Butterball company of the impending investigation. She was suspended. There were 6 workers taken to court for their treatment of the birds. This goes on in every big company that processes meat. They just don't get caught most of the time. They fire a bunch of employees, then it goes on again, until they are caught again.
Even if they do, how often do normal people not wash their hands as they should. That is why you see the sign in bathrooms, instructing employees to wash their hands after going to the bathroom. We hide our heads in the sand about our food here....we don't want to think about it. Teens work in fast food places. They often ignore the rules or think it is unnecessary or just plain choose to ignore the rules. We would not eat most of the food we buy, if we knew the truth.
We don't even take care of our seniors in this country. Do you know how bad most of the nursing homes are. People are left in dirty diapers, they fall on the floor, they are not fed properly by aides, and are left with bed sores and dehydration. I have seen it. We leave our seniors often in places that are horrible to live out their lives.
So how do I know if the Moringa Powder I carry is clean? It will be tested by the FDA lab before it is packaged. There is no way to know with 100% certainty about any food we eat....including Moringa whether it is produced in the US or from another country. If companies in the US are ignoring rules and regulations concerning our food, it can be true of any company and is true. The best you can do is have your product powder tested for E-coli, bacteria, and contamination.
Organic certified does not guarantee much. Companies cheat there as well. They are inspected twice a year. Many of them use pesticides in the night when no one is around. You are fooling yourself if you think that organic certified is safe. Read my articles on this blog that proves that very point. Organic certified is only as good as the ethical standards of the company who sells it. Anything I sell on this site, I will have investigated as fully as possible with a certificate of analysis, investigation of the company, and FDA lab tests on the shipment. That is as far as you can go to make sure the product is clean and good quality. This is the only answer I can give.
I would suggest you start really thinking about the quality of our food produced here...because much of it .....you wouldn't eat if you knew the truth. Saying that I will not sell anything from India. The standards there have been proven to me to be low and I simply will not sell it.
This is my detention notice from the FDA for some organic certified powder sent to me from India.......it was not safe and was ordered to be destroyed. Be sure to read the highlighted part in yellow. You think Organic Certified is safe and pure.....not in many cases. Proof is below.
