Out of the 153 samples, 34 were mislabeled, thats 22%.
22% of the fish on store shelves wasn’t what it say it was, that’s not good, but this is Canada we have people to look after that for us right!
That is the job of the CFIA, or Canadian Food Inspection Agency, so what do have to say about 22% of fish samples being mislabled.
According to a CBC news story, “Mary Ann Green, the head of the agency’s food safety and consumer protection department.” said “The majority of your products were in compliance.”
Thats right rather then saying, thats an issue we need new legislation or that is unacceptable we will need to look into it, this issue was passed off as being a minor flaw in a working system.
I think it’s time for some major food safety regulatory changes in our country after this blatant ignorance of a major issue.
Clearly we have the technology to monitor these issues it’s simply ignorance on the part of our government that is leading to these issues.
