How do you feel about foods certified organic by Old Mexico and sold in the US without US inspection

It happens and I know that veggies must be labeled with the country of origin but what about foods that composed of a variety of plants and animals?

I know for a fact that many of the yellow, white and blue organic labeled corn tortilla chips are Mexico certified organic but not labeled as such since it is a processed food. I don't trust Mexico for any kind of honesty. Minsa Corporation is a huge importer of Mexican certified organic corn. Most of this can be verified by checking the organic growers and and the number of certified US acres of corn and those of sold organic corn. There is a huge gap but it is legal. I have much more to say about this but this is my 2nd thread on DU and want to see the response and start a fact finding dialogue of organic consumers attitudes. I don't like what is happening but I don't know the consumers opinion before I pursue this further.
