Do you think that the fruit made in Mexico is safe to eat??

An Asian friend of mine gave me some mangos....she gets them from an Asian store and my daughter loves them.  Well after we had some at her house, tonight my daughters wanted more. So I started to cut it and noticed a sticker that said product of Mexico.  Do you think they are safe to eat?  I am just imagining them sneezing on them and putting them into the line.  Would you eat them?

You should always WASH fruit before eating it plus its not made in Mexico its grown.  Oh and yes I would eat them after I washed them!

 YOU SHOULD WASH YOUR FRUIT NO MATTER WHERE ITS GROWN, AND FYI THE FRUIT AND EVERYTHING THAT WE BUY THATS MADE IN THE USA HAS THE CHANCE OF SOMEONE COUGHING ON IT. NOT JUST FRUITS FROM MEXICO

Really I am not trying to be smart I know that someone else could cough on them.. I just know that this Swine flu started in Mexico.

I think your safe.  The majority of fruit we eat is from Mexico and if it was passed that way Everyone would be sick

It's transmitted by PEOPLE not fruit.  As long as you wash it you should be just fine.  There is swine flu here too so I don't think it would matter where your fruit came from.
