The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s Seafood Task Force found widespread mislabeling and other violations during a survey of 103 retail food facilities, according to Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

Of the facilities surveyed, 74 percent had label misbranding or false advertising on their menus. Some of these included substituting crawfish for lobster or selling imitation crab, octopus or abalone as the real product.

Antonovich initiated the task force, which was a collaborative effort of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the Department of Public Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
