Safe travel

"This is a trade problem that is not just about China, but rather goes to a trade model that prioritizes increasing the volume of traded food over safety," Global Trade Watch director Lori Wallach said Wednesday in a news release.

The report said nearly $65 billion in food is imported annually -- almost double the value imported when NAFTA went into effect.

"In 2005, the United States, formerly known as the world's bread basket, became a net food importer for the first time, with a food deficit of nearly $370 million," the report said."
