DNA testing has food fraud running scared
The U.S. Grocery Manufacturers Association estimates that food fraud costs the global food industry between $10 and $15 billion annually, affecting 10 percent of all commercially sold food products. Food fraud is the act of defrauding food buyers for economic gain, like substituting Pacific salmon for Atlantic salmon, or diluting ingredients, like adding other oils not labelled to olive oil. Recently, the New York Attorney General sent cease and desist letters to major retailers for selling fraudulent herbal supplements based on DNA testing, demanding they remove the products from their shelves.
