Such A Thing As Counterfeit Groceries

Just the term itself got me intrigued. Counterfeit Groceries? Makes you wonder how a food can exactly be a counterfeit as just the thought of say an apple not being an apple is a little off the wall. But essentially what this is apparently is that a lot of bargain stores that sell things for like a dollar often sell some kind of food items as well. Many times there are products apparently that are imported and have not gone through any kind of screening and approval process like all other foods.

Therefore, things like the nutrition labels on the products can be completely inaccurate as they simply just want you to buy the products. That must be scary for things like multivitamins. You get what you pay for I guess you can say?
