All that food grown in Mexico for export - how is it really like?

vil | Feb 4, 201505:44 AM

I notice that the boxed salad greens I get from Earth Bound Farms are produced in USA and Mexico, with the processing done in USA.

I live in Canada and was surprised (but not really), on a recent visit to Walmart, that at the produce section, pretty much everything was from Mexico - apples, oranges, grapefruit, cucumbers, leafy greens, bananas etc.

One of my friends tell me she avoids all produce from there, because of presumably poor standards. How is it really like, and how does it compare? What I mean is, the standards and the use of chemicals - obviously it is USDA approved, but is there anything that we should be aware of?
