India has some of the most polluted water in the world, and believe it or not, they don't import water to grow crops or clean produce. There is no regulation on the water used for production; the food may not give you an immediate illness, but it still contains contaminants. I would avoid food from India.

"The food contains contaminants"? What is your authority for that statement? Source? Link? Packaged/canned food from India is probably safer than American.

So you don't trust food packaged in America as well? It has to follow the same safety regs as food imported from other countries....so if food from India is not safe...neither is anything else.

In addition, that is not dealt with by any sewer system).

However - the dilemma is that Indian food is some of the best and probably the most flavorful food in the world. So you've got a packaged food meal (ready to heat and serve) - and you are concerned about the production facilities. I understand that, as I think anyone who had been to India a number of times would. (I remember being told at one place in Bangalore to keep my mouth closed when showering).
I would have gone without a shower.

I should be more worried? Why?

First off, I doubt they have any "sanity" laws in India and if they do, they probably don't have much to do with food preparation. Second, just because you bought it in an Indian grocery, was it made in India? Did it say on the package?

Without "sanity" laws....are you suggesting that they are all mad?
