What’s Really in Our Food?: Country of Origin (2008)

Season 1, Episode 10

We eat a huge variety of food from all over the world, but without country-of-origin labeling, we do not always know what conditions it has been grown or manufactured in, or how safe it is. Is imported garlic bleached with chloride? Are our prawns farmed with cancer-causing chemicals? With the huge volume of imported produce crossing our borders, who is checking for quality and contaminants before food gets to our table?
