The following news is from the FoodNavigator.com on May 7, 2013.

The European Commission has proposted to streamline legislation and increase fines to reduce food fraud after the recent horse meat scandal. The EC has proposed to reduce the current 70 pieces of legislation covering food safety to 5. The legislation will increase the number of unannounced inspections and increase fines to a level equal to the economic gain from the fraud. In addition, the EC would have authority to require testing by member states.
