Beware of food from China!

The craziest thing happened last week while we were over at a friend's house. They were soaking dried shitake mushrooms and found three rusty 2 inch nails embedded in three of the mushrooms. I should have taken a picture of them...

Sure enough, the mushrooms were from China (as almost all dried shitake mushrooms are). We generally try to avoid food products stamped "Made in China", but for many things, it's difficult to tell (i.e. fruit, packaged foods made w/ raw ingredients from China, etc.). I'm guessing a bunch of those cereals I love may use raw materials from China.
