Should all foods be subject to DNA testing to make sure they are correctly labeled?

    I don’t think this would be a very economically feasible nor cost effective procedure. Unless you are talking about strictly produce, most of the food we buy is made of of different organisms some would have different DNA within it. For example bread may contain wheat, oaks, sesame, yeast, etc. Secondly, even for produce the substitution of a similar food is generally not hazardous to our health. DNA testing is still a very expensive procedure and in this case I do not see it reaping much benefit. The only exception I can see may be for meat products.
