Legal Question

Asked on: 3/26/13, 11:10 am

I have a product I want to sell in USA, and there is only one similar product like mine which is sold solely online and in Whole foods here is US, but the product shows 2012 patent pending on its packaging. Moreover, this same product has been sold in other Asian countries for many many years.Can you patent something that already exists in another country, and Can I get into legal trouble if I introduce that product in USA?

Please advice.

Thanks a lot.
