The increasing number of food producers, and the outstanding amount of import foodstuffs enables the producers to mislead and cheat consumers. To differentiate those who take advantage of legal rules from the ones who commit food adulteration is very difficult. The consciousness of consumers would be crucial. However, how can we expect consequent behavior from them regarding controversial issues emerging day by day? In addition, ignorance and unfair market behavior may endanger consumer health and misleading can lead to poisoning. So we need sanctions and judicial penalties with an adequate restraining force to halt this process.
