There have been instances of prawn and pasta containers filled with nails as part of an intentional contamination to harm a business.

Either that or someone over at Malcolm's Seafood and Carpentry Supply is in for an ass-chewing.

Secrets of the Shoplifters is pretty amazing stuff. Retail stores in the UK saw a 12% rise in shoplifting in one year. And much of the shoplifting is to-order.

A shoplifter takes an order over his phone then heads off to steal the stuff for his customer.

There was a honey broker who had to quit the business after decades. Because he couldn't find any unadulterated honey.

sort of like a 'hostile takeover' that is routine in the U.S.A.  or maybe a Monopoly that tells the government to look the other way when they want to buy, yet, another business to reduce/eliminate their competition.

Monopolies used to be broken up.  not anymore.... that's bad for business now.

Yeah, that olive oil or some fancy oil that you can't taste from soybean oil ... probably soybean oil. The olive oil costs x3-x4 times as much but you can't taste a difference. (Not talking about EVOO - though mixture of EVOO and soybean oil will probably give the same taste).

The whole organic thing ...

However, the money is in restaurants and not in the ingredients. Ingredients make up a small portion of the restaurant's expenses, even for a cheap Chinese buffet.

I want to try monk fish so bad, but I don't trust it because I live in the mid-west and will never see a whole monk fish unless I pay out the arse.  I've heard it's awesome.

Monkfish is awesome. Want some, fresh out of the water? Move to sunny Washington. It's a food paradise here. Come, be not afraid - be one of us. One of us.

I have family in Olympia.  Maybe I should visit.  If I were to ever move away from Minnesota, it would be Washington or Oregon for sure though.

I read about that last year and I was honestly shocked.  But once I started buying honey at Whole Foods that was produced locally in a neighboring county, I realized it's true.  You can taste how different real honey is.  It tastes like honey did when I was a little kid -- which was when we lived in a rural area and all the honey we bought was local.

You should pay more attention to where the "legitimate" food comes from. "Packaged in the USA" does not mean it was grown here. All kinds of contaminated chinese products are probably gonna be on your dinner table tonight.

Spices in particular. My bill for spices has tripled because I demand to know where all the ingredients come from, and am willing to pay for the homegrown stuff.

This was both a food crime, a crime against cinema, and a crime against music all in one. That guy's a triple threat.
