If you have a serious food allergy that if triggered could make you incredibly ill, it will be likely that you’ll be pretty fastidious when it comes to checking the labels on food and drink products you buy. To people who are not afflicted with this type of condition, doing so will probably appear a fairly tiresome task, but in some cases, food allergies can actually be life threatening. This is precisely why it’s so important that food products are properly labelled. If they are not, nobody will have any idea what’s in anything.
Unfortunately though, just because a label says one thing, its claims might not bear any resemblance to what it’s labelling. The horsemeat scandal of early 2013 went a long way to prove that we don’t really have much control over what’s in our food. It can be relatively easy for unscrupulous food manufacturers to mislabel things. A bit of horsemeat isn’t going to do anybody any harm. In fact, horse is regularly eaten in many other countries, some as close as Europe.
