“Apple juice made in America? Think again”

 By Christina Rexrode, Associated Press

excerpt:

•” Not all juices are treated the same. About 99% of the grapefruit juice Americans drink is produced on U.S. soil, while about a quarter of the orange juice is imported; more than 40% of that is from Brazil.”

• “About half of the fresh fruit Americans eat comes from elsewhere. That’s more than double the amount in 1975.”

•”Some 86% of the shrimp, salmon, tilapia and other fish and shellfish Americans eat comes from other countries. That’s up from about 56% in 1990.”
