Changes Coming to Seafood Labelling

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it plans to modernize seafood labelling. The agency says it recently published proposals for labels to include the country of origin for imported whole fish and the fishes’ common names. It says it also plans to explore ways the industry can ensure truthful claims are made on labels. A report released Friday by a coalition of environmental groups says existing rules leave Canadian consumers with less information than those in Europe or the United States.
