Bon Appétiters Join Oceana Campaign Against Seafood Fraud
In 2011, Oceana, an international research, education, and advocacy group, released a report that said 25 to 70% of seafood is mislabeled. Recently, the group did extensive testing in LA and found that 55% of the 119 seafood samples they took were labeled incorrectly.
To galvanize the U.S. government to set labeling and inspection standards, Oceana has launched a Stop Seafood Fraud campaign with a letter for chefs and restaurant owners to sign, asking for stricter seafood regulations.
Oceana reached out to Bon Appétit to ask for our support, and we’re proud that about a third of the names on Oceana’s list of 300 chefs and restaurant owners are Bon Appétit Management Company ones, alongside such culinary leaders as Rick Bayless, Eric Ripert and Michael Symon.
