No --
US needs jobs & farmers/fishermen etc need a decent price for what they produce
Chinese record on safety is abysmal
The fish & apple products thing tic'd me off and this is no different.
I resent that we are not given easily accessible knowledge to make choices

It would just bother me to know that my chicken had traveled all the way to China and back AFTER IT WAS DEAD! Yuck.

I wonder about chicken stock - it is chicken processed to render a broth. My guess is that it would be not exempt from the exported-imported (USA-China) chicken processing ban that has been lifted.
I think people who eat overprocessed chicken don't really have much call to be picky about where their overprocessed food is coming from. I mean - they're eating "chicken nuggets" for crying out loud. Chickens don't have nuggets as parts. It's ground up chicken-gizzards and beaks and who knows what else, plus maybe a few pinches of white meat so they don't get in trouble with the truth in advertising laws - covered with old corn oil, dunked in breadcrumbs made from stale cast-offs of some commercial bread-making facility, with artificial flavors, colors, and plenty of sodium so you can't taste how horrible this stuff really is.

Do you really think where the meat comes from, should even be a blip on their priority radar?

It is amazing how many people want clear food labeling yet when it comes time to vote on whether or not labeling for something like GMOs should be mandatory people Vote against their own interests. Makes no sense at all.

What's your source for that claim? Not saying it isn't true, but I tend to think it's not.

If it was from a reputable company (equivalent quality to US processed chicken) yes. But I prefer US processed chicken.

well I don't either, but my guess, as I have said before, we eat a lot more "made in China" foods when we dine out than we think we do.

I bought some frog legs a few weeks ago, checked closely and they were processed in a fish company in Jacksonville, fl. Dumb me, I didn't read all the info. I was about to fix a few last night: guess what; in small print: product from China. I am so pissed. I don't know what to do. I am torn between throwing them out and just cooking them anyway.

Frog legs and whole rabbits are usually items imported from China.
