Meat products: Identifying adulteration versus contamination
There is increasing scrutiny of what we are eating, especially with regard to meat and its provenance. Consumers want to know where their meat has come from, that it was raised and produced ethically and that it complies with their cultural or religious demands. This is a perfectly reasonable expectation, particularly if a premium product commands a premium price. Legislators and other authorities apply appropriate constraints on labelling of produce and ask for evidence of compliance from the producers.
