I definitely agree with the food. I have bought some at Costco, by mistake.There have been too many instances of shortcuts taken with Chinese food. Plus, I don't know that their is an equivalent of the FDA in China (not that ours doesn't need a lot of improvement).
As stated earlier, I avoid food from China, not Chinese food, which I love.
As for Chinese CD's, I have done well with them and they do give some diversification. The bank is FDIC insured, so the only risk is currency risk. I can live with that.
