‘Consumer Reports’: People ‘Ripped Off When They Buy Fish’

Kudos to Consumer reports for their investigative prowess. I can’t help wondering if this “fish scam” has infiltrated to other food products as well.

Consumer Reports Friday will reveal a mislabeled seafood scam that leaves millions of consumers clueless whether the fish they think they’re buying is the fish they’re actually getting.

The world’s largest independent product-testing organization Friday will reveal that 22% of the seafood it tested at supermarkets, restaurants, fish markets, gourmet stores and big-box stores in three states was either mislabeled, incompletely labeled or misidentified by store or restaurant employees.

“Consumers are getting ripped off when they buy fish,” says Kim Kleman, editor-in-chief of Consumer Reports.
