Food fraud—tampering, diluting, mislabeling, substituting, or misrepresenting food, ingredients, or packaging for the sole intent of financial gain—is pervasive and widespread. Remember when horse meat was detected a few years ago in what was thought to be hamburger in the UK and Ireland? This was not the first—nor the last—incident of food fraud. Fooling the consumer with a little bait and switch has been going on for thousands of years.
