Trader Joe's Ginger and the FDA

"Naturally occuring sulfites"???!!! If you are quoting what your supplier tells you then sack them and find someone reputable. Ginger DOES NOT have "naturally occuring sulfites - they are added to the pre process storage solution and only poor quality control producers cant flush it out - if its yellow its had sulfites - case closed.
Some natural chemicals in ginger will test as a sulfite but well below 10 parts per million - this was blocked by the FDA because it was OVER 10ppm. This was blocked by the FDA because the labelling didnt match the reality. And it will happen again I bet.
