"Hästköttsskandalen", det är vanligt att byta en sorts kött mot ett annat; Alla djur har samma rätt att leva

Substitution of one kind of flesh for another based on lower cost and therefore higher profits appears to be far more widespread than people realise. The Oceana website states:

>>From 2010 to 2012, Oceana conducted one of the largest seafood fraud in
vestigations in the world to date, collecting more than 1,200 seafood samples from 674 retail outlets in 21 states to determine if they were honestly labeled.

DNA testing found that one-third (33 percent) of the 1,215 samples analyzed nationwide were mislabeled, according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines.<<

84% of "tuna" in sushi restaurants was snake mackerel.

A survey in Australia found similar results.

So it would appear that the hue and cry over these meat substitution "scandals" is not only completely irrational and totally missing the point about the ethics of consuming any animal products, but is also about something that is not new or out of the ordinary. It's probably been going on since forever with all kinds of flesh "foods", as long as business could get away with it and the people were happy to chow down on whatever kind of corpse they thought they were eating. But suddenly because it's being publicised, everyone's upset about it. What a pity they don't get upset about something that actually matters, like the billions and trillions of beings being killed for their palate pleasure.
