Chinese rock salt?

PostBy: djackman On: Sun Mar 01, 2009 7:34 pm

Just got back from Home Depot, they have skids of road salt all marked "Product of China". Mindboggling that it's cheaper to ship it halfway around the world than to produce it here.

Also wonder what besides calcium chloride is in there. :shock:
