Dr Oz: What is Food Fraud?
Shaun Kennedy, Director of the National Center for Food Protection & Defense, helped Dr. Oz and his viewers to understand the definition of food fraud. Shaun explained it is when you buy a product based on the label and it is not what it appears to be, which is referred to by the FDA as economically altered adulteration. He went on to say it is when a company is trying to sell you something cheaper than what you think you are buying, but the worst part is that it can cause serious risks to your health. Shaun Kennedy told Dr. Oz that food fraud is happening more often nowadays because it comes down to money and profit.
