Irradiated food label warning
By FWi staff
CONSUMERS could be buying irradiated food under a different name, a consumer group has warned.
The food — which is sterilised using radioactive material — may be labelled electronically pasteurised said the Food Commission.
Consumer groups fear irradiated food could encourage poor hygiene and reduce nutritional value, reports The Independent.
