Fishy fraud

Posted: Updated:

USA - DNA a testing shows there's something fishy going on with seafood labeling in America.

In New York City, sampling found 40% of seafood was mislabeled, and similar studies in other cities found high proportions of mislabeled fish including a whopping 55-percent in Los Angeles.

13 kinds of fish were found mislabeled.

One was replaced with another fish with higher mercury content and a second was replaced with one that can cause diarrhea.
