I have a couple of issues with the importation of food from immigrant's country of origin. First, how can we be sure these foods are safe if they are not processed in the USA? We have a number of cases of salmonella, etc. that are difficult to trace. It would be impoosible with imported foods. Woe be it to those who participate in "Bring a dish to pass" events, an imported food used in one of those dishes, and masses of people getting sick -- or worse. Second, if we are serious about our wanting immigrants to assimilate, how is importing foods frm their native countries contributing to that goal? I understand that having foods that are familiar to them may make them feel more comfortable. But we always hear about the importance of assimilation. Isn't this practice of importing foods from their countries contradictory to their assimilaiton?
