Meet the Man Who Fights Rampant Food Fraud – Eater

“Samadpour’s company — which has over 1,500 employees across 116 labs — tests everything from whether or not a box of raspberries are actually organic or if a piece of “wild-caught” fish is actually wild, or the species listed on the label. He notes that fish are often mislabeled because once they have been filleted, there’s no way of identifying the specifies without a DNA test. Other products that are commonly found in restaurants like olive oil, are also often fraudulent.” – Eater
