    We grown them here and send them to China where they can slice them
    much more economically using child labor. Then they send them back to
    to the U.S. (*).

    I agree with Gary's puzzlement. AFAIK, Giorgio's whole mushrooms come
    from Indonesia, while their stems and pieces come from India. (I may
    have these reversed.)

    Default More about canned mushrooms

    At the grocery story yesterday morning, I looked to see if they had canned
    mushrooms. They still sell them but not the old "B&B" brand which I seem to
    remember.

    They offer generic store brand mushrooms...all from the USA.

    Interesting though is a brand name, "Giorgio"

    They had cans of mushrooms either sliced or whole and 2 sizes of each. What
    I found interesting is that the cans of whole mushrooms were a product of
    the USA. The 2 sizes of the sliced mushrooms were a product from China
    though. wth?

    This is the case as labor in China is much cheaper than US. Anyways, the
    product cannot be of China if the mushrooms are grown in US.
