Why would you buy from Mexico when there is plenty of American product available from Calif.,Ohio, New Jersey,and New York to name a few American growing locations? The buyer was only concerned about price and is not protecting American consumers. Who are the lawyers going to sue? The importers only have phones for assets and Mexicans cannot be sued, who is going to pay for the more than 600 victims health bills? (maybe Obama care!)If a American is found to have "adultered" the product he is thrown in jail and bankrupt!Wake up buyers buy American.
