Leave a comment

Marine conservation group Oceana has uncovered a nationwide shrimp scandal that has seafood lovers feeling queasy. Using DNA testing, the group examined 143 shrimp dishes from stores and restaurants across America, finding that a whopping 30 percent were misrepresented. Their findings, which ranged from mislabeling farm-raised shrimp as wild, or misrepresenting species of shrimp being sold, have prompted authorities to push for the passing of the Safety and Fraud Enforcement for Seafood Act, which has been introduced to Congress and awaits approval.
