What's That? Wednesday 10/26/2011

I considered taking a "sick day" from the blog this week as 3 out of the 4 members of our family have been very sick this week, but we are rallying!  I hope to blog about our first and second visitors from the States and our October holiday soon.  I am so behind!

For this week's What's That? Wednesday post, I need you to take a look at the picture below and see if you can find the similarity between all three packages of food.  Do you see it?

 If you spotted the white "S" against the blue background, then you win the prize (your check is in the mail).  I have been told that this is the international symbol for safe foods.  I do pay attention to it when I'm shopping at the stores, but most of the things that I'm interested in purchasing have the symbol on them.

I tried to do some internet research on the symbol, but I had no luck finding anything.  Sorry I don't have more details!
A close-up of the packaging.

A few health & safety practices have already gone by the way-side.  At first I thought I wouldn't wear flip-flops outside because it's quite dirty, but that only lasted a week or so.  We also used bottled water to brush our teeth...for the first month, now we use the tap (we don't drink from the tap though).  And, I'm okay with the fact that my eggs aren't refrigerated when I purchase them.  I figure the Chinese have survived for thousands of years and we will too!
