Meat fraud cases

Meat authenticity isn’t always guaranteed

Adulteration is a common form of food fraud. Meat adulteration is no different in that matter. Cheaper meat products are processed into finished products without the consumer's knowledge. Chicken injection is a perfect example of food fraud in the meat industry.

In addition, freshness fraud also occurs regularly. Sometimes meat products have already been frozen and are still sold with the label 'fresh'.

This model can also detect whether or not 'fresh' meat has been previously frozen.
