Fish Fraud -- KCBS2 Investigation

nosh | Feb 5, 2007 01:31 PM

So the evening news folks at cbs (channel 2 and 9) sent investigators to four prominent Los Angeles seafood restaurants and ordered the "red snapper." Then they sent their fish to a DNA lab, which found two mahi mahi, one tilapia, and one catfish actually served. The places were Gladstones, Delmonico's, Bluewater Grill, and Walt's Wharf. When confronted, each place denied mislabelling their fish and blamed some sort of inexplicable human error.

Makes you wonder.....
