Why is that again? I wonder.

i think that that is quite gross because there will not be a lebel that says if it is from china or not. i would not eat chicken nuggets from resteraunts now knowing that it could be from china. Plus china has had many safety problems in their factories just this year thousands of pigs were in the water of china. over all, that is gross.
