    Any Canned Mandarins and Mushrooms Not From China?

    Every time I look for canned Mandarin oranges or mushrooms (primarily stems and pieces), the labels say they are from China. Has anybody found a brand that is not from China?

    Richard,

    I have only ever used fresh mushrooms so it's not an issue for me. I will have to check at the grocery store about the mandarin oranges though I use mostly fresh when a recipe calls for them.

    I know Trader Joe's has mandarin oranges that are not from China.

    Good to know....last time I was at Whole Foods, all of their mandarin oranges were from China. Next time I am at TJ's I will stock up!
    Go for it!

    Wow! Very interesting. My Kroger's mushrooms are from Indonesia.
    Who knew. I read my labels, but apparently not well enough.

    I've never bought a canned mushroom or orange, but I remember reading a year or so ago that TJ's had stopped selling Chinese imports. Check the labels, but I believe no canned or packaged fruit/veg at TJ's is from China.
