    Our local grocery store must have done a buy out of Phillip's crab dip. They were selling it for .79cents. I tried it. It was awful. So if you see it in the stores, I'd reccommend not buying it. Glad I didn't spend more.

    Flip over any Phillip's Seafood container and you'll most likely see "Product of Indonesia".

    Well, I agree with Bob, I think that it is ridiculous that Phillips (of all places) won't support the local fishermen, but on the other hand I wouldn't get to freaked out about where the seafood your eating is coming from. If you went to any local grocery store and looked at the back of the packages, a lot of your fish, shrimp, crab and seafood was taken from places outside of America, and when you eat out you really have no clue where the seafood was harvested - I used that word because a lot of it, (even the stuff coming from the "far east") is farm raised which means it's been fed steriods, growth hormones, and antibiotics... mmm yum...

    For example,They sell "Maryland style "seafood.I think state law prohibits advertising Maryland seafood if it's not local.Also, they refer to the "blue swimming crab" which is native to Asia and is no way the same as a Chesapeake Bay blue crab.
    Dean,
    It's more about the misrepresentation of a product.

    Bob, once again I agree with you whole heartedly, not only are they doing that, but in this case they have actually went out of there way to do it...

    The only point I was trying to make when Z06RL, showed disgust after learning the origin of the crabmeat, is that this happens WAY more than people think... in other words if you believe that when you order a seafood meal in a random restaurant you are going to be served only fish from the good ole U.S.A. you are operating under a false petense.

    McDonald's is actually pretty good about dealing with quality US farms.

    Of course, I don't actually *eat* meat or seafood, so it's all kind of academic to me. But there's no way it makes sense to spend the money to go to a beach resort, pay for fresh local seafood and end up eating something that's been frozen and shipped overseas.
