Tests show MSC fish accurately labeled

July 18, 2012

Of the 196 samples recently tested, 192 were correctly labelled according to species. Samples were collected from 11 different markets in Europe, Africa, the Americas, Australasia and Asia.

The four samples that were falsely labeled were investigated by certifiers; expedited audits were also carried out. For three of the four products, the issue was identified and resolved. In the fourth instance, an action plan to facilitate identification and surveillance of potential risks will be put in place.

This is good to hear, especially after this concerning report of mislabeled Chilean sea bass last year.  Of course, the study makes no mention of this species, and I found their response to this report pretty underwhelming (see here).
