The horsemeat scandal of 2013 in the European Union had many adverse effects on the beef industry and consumer confidence, and highlighted the terrifying fact that consumers are being duped at an alarming rate. In a CBS News segment which aired on the CBS This Morning show, April 26, 2016, CBS News Correspondent Anna Warner states that horsemeat is in our food supply, and that up to 10% of the food you buy has been adulterated. She also shares that the wine and fish we buy is among the known adulterated foods, as reported by the University of Minnesota's National Food Protection and Defense.
Food fraud is costing consumers $10-$15 billion per year, according to Brian Kennedy of Grocery Manufacturers Association, who has launched a new device to combat food fraud with a tool developed by Battelle.
