Newsy minute: the fish story
February 02, 2012
Have you ever thought that the fish you were eating might not be what the market or restaurant labeled it to be? We have discovered that mislabeling in the Joplin area attributes a less expensive whitefish or catfish as either "flounder" or "sole" and charges accordingly. Other mislabeling involves selling "farmed salmon" as "wild salmon," and "tilapia" as "red snapper," especially in sushi. Granted, one needs to train his or her taste buds to determine this.
