This is awesome and the kind of story I love to hear. It’s also why I absolutely refuse to eat sushi anywhere except restaurants and grocers that are frequented by Japanese people. I figure if anyone knows how to tell quality from crap when it comes to raw fish, it’s the locals.
Anyway, this story on ccn.com about Kate Stoeckle and Louisa Strauss, two New York high school students who used DNA testing to show that several New York restaurants were selling sushi that was mislabeled, caught my attention and I figured I’d pass it along to DIFF readers who hadn’t heard about it.
I’m really impressed with these two. It’s amazing that they took the iniative and had the knowledge to complete the study and investigation. Cheating consumers is serious business, even when it’s just selling fish more expensively than should be.
Congratulations to Kate and Louisa for a job well done. Guess what? They are the DIFF!
