A few weeks ago, it came to light that horsemeat had been detected in the ground beef supply used by several European outlets of an American fast-food chain.
Instead of renaming their sandwiches the Quarterhorse Pounder, the Big Nag or the Whipper, the owners of the affected restaurants, to their credit, scrambled to find new, reliable ground beef suppliers.
How long did they have to wait to get squared away again? Not furlong.
But just as that food fraud scandal was being laid to rest, a new one emerged. Last week, a study by an environmental advocacy group was released, indicating that about one-third of all seafood products sold in American stores and restaurants are mislabeled.
I haven't read the details of the study yet, but I already have one strong suspicion:
Seahorse meat may be involved.
