Al­ways look at the la­bel

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

I travel a lot and have be­come much more care­ful about what I eat when I’m out and about. I’ll be even more cau­tious af­ter read­ing that around 8% of meat tested in Scot­land last year was found to con­tain the DNA of an an­i­mal not listed on the la­belling.

It made me think about how rarely we check what’s in some­thing be­fore we buy it, stick it in the oven and eat it. That’s why when I’m trav­el­ling, I tend to stick to veg­e­tar­ian or fish dishes – but I think I’ll be look­ing care­fully at the back of food pack­ag­ing be­fore I buy now.
