How often has DNA testing shown foods to be mislabeled?



  1. 0 Votes

    Around 80% of seafood in the US is imported but the FDA only examines 2% of it.  For reasons like this, it is difficult to determine how much food is mislabeled. DNA testing can be a major tool in identifying mislabeled food items. A NY high school group of researchers found mislabeled sturgeon caviar, sheep’s milk cheese made from cow’s milk, and venison dog treats made from beef. In many cases of mislabeling, the substituted product is a cheaper and less desirable food product. This leads some to believe the mislabeling is actually intentional.
