Have you ever went to a flea market and seen a coach bag you just had to have at a unbelievable price? How did you feel when you got home with said bag and realized you bought a rip off of the name brand? That is bad, and I guess some people may really be hurt over it. Most of us knows to watch out for the name brand purses and sunglasses etc.
Now though they are counterfeiting something that can really effect our health. FOOD. Yes food. What they are doing it most with is: Olive Oil, Honey, Milk, wine and brace yourself ladies. But Vodka. They were even telling on the news tonight about tomatoes and baby formula was being counterfeited. They are watering these products down and labeling them as something they aren’t.
I am not against generic foods or store brand foods and I have bought those types before. I just don’t think it’s fair for someone to put a label on something saying it is one thing and in reality it be a bottle of water.
At this point I am not sure how you can tell if the labels are fake or not. Just be careful and know it’s out there.
I just feel it is a shame. We all can’t afford organic foods or eat raw. We have the right to know what is what on what we are buying. Especially baby formula! It just infuriates me.
Just while you are out shopping stick to what you know and keep your eyes out. That’s all we can really do. Until the next time stay safe!
