    Why do some food have the label: Not for sale in the United States?

    After the earthquake in Chile, a friend and I wondered if the United States would help that country the way they did Haiti. My friend said that Chile is not a Third World country and the United States is not on good terms with that country. However, the President,according to my friend, did mention his willingness to help as needed. Then the information came up that there are food and goods not for sale in the USA and they bear such label.We guestimated they were inferior quality and not good enough for Americans. Can someone clear this up and provide the real reasons?

    I think it's because those foods would not pass the USDA requirements to be sold in United States. They may not necessarily be inferior products, but the USDA has strict guidelines that all food products must pass.

    I find it odd that they would even label it as such our food is already inferior infact most foreign countries have better food then we do, oh its abundant here but good for you i think not. Our products have no real nutrients and if it does its labeled as such and it cost more. Our food causes a lot of issues like sickness and fatigue being someone who  buys only from farmer markets and i grow my own food now, I can say with confidence that our food is killing us  our bodies our minds and the future generations. They control how many toxins can be in the food not controling no toxins in my food so thats a** backwards already. it was probably packaged incorrectly or labled incorrectly and it was more cost affective to give to chile then to fix it. i could go on with this subject but We are not treated any different if we are ignorant to what is wrong they will go on with it til someone says "hey this can't be good" and they pretend they had no clue and there working on it now.
