Default Polar Fruit Company (Chinese fruit?)

Have you purchased and/or consumed any of the jarred Fuji Apples, peaches, or mixed fruit from the Polar Fruit company? I think they are grown and packaged in China. Would you eat food from China?

I'm looking at a can of Polar strawberries right now and it clearly says "Product of China" on it. Dang. I should have looked at it more closely before buying. I would never have bought it if I had been paying attention. I do not knowingly use, eat or buy any Chinese garbage.

*Update*

I called Polar fruit and they said they package and grow their products in China. I bought 4 jars of it before, I am donating it or tossing it out because I will not eat China sourced food. After all those incidents with the pet food and baby formula, no thanks.
