They offer generic store brand mushrooms...all from the USA.

They had cans of mushrooms either sliced or whole and 2 sizes of each. *What

I agree with Gary's puzzlement. AFAIK, Giorgio's whole mushrooms come
from Indonesia, while their stems and pieces come from India. (I may
have these reversed.)

This is the case as labor in China is much cheaper than US. Anyways, the product cannot be of China if the mushrooms are grown in US.
