Fish Fraud: Are You Really Buying What the Label Claims?

EMSL Analytical, Inc. uses DNA Analysis to authenticate food products


In recent years, the media has followed numerous scandals concerning the illnesses and economic repercussions of food fraud. A common deception practiced by some unscrupulous food manufacturers involves substituting a cheaper product for a more expensive one to save money, and discerning the truth can be difficult for distributors and consumers.
“EMSL Analytical, Inc. can authenticate your product with DNA Analysis, using PCR testing,” states Joseph Frasca, Senior VP of Marketing at EMSL. “We have helped many of our clients, both companies and individuals, determine what a product really is.”
This advanced and extremely precise technology can pinpoint the exact species of an animal food product. For example, EMSL Analytical’s DNA testing laboratory can establish whether sea scallops are in fact scallops or shark meat cut to look like scallops.
A vast variety of samples types can be tested using these methods—not only food—but the results are always accurate and legally defensible.
