Please read the complaint filed by Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi concerning food fraud. The cost of selling Gulf of Tonkin shrimp as Gulf of Mexico Shrimp just greatly increased. AG Bondi stepped in on behalf of the voiceless and unsuspecting citizens and visitors who are affected by seafood product substitution.
Not enough effort has ever gone in to enforcing seafood fraud and everyone in the trade knows it.
Every business interested in doing the right thing for the right reason would be well advised to follow the actions of AG Bondi. She, and all of us know that this problem would go away completely if the vendor only labeled the product for what it really is.
