Whole Foods Market: California by way of China?

I received an email invitation to take a survey from Whole Foods Market. I was happy to do it, and thereby discovered the Whole Foods Market forums. So I happily popped in to see what was happening, and discovered a discussion started in late November 2008, Organic Produce from China?, in which a forum member states:

Imagine my surprise when preparing a dish for Thanksgiving when I discovered that the Whole Foods “365 Organic Chopped Spinach” was labeled “A Product of China”. The front of the package is also labeled “USDA ORGANIC”. I had a conversation with several Whole Foods employees at the Walnut Creek store, all of which were puzzled and unaware that the spinach was from China.
