Fact of the Day: Faux Tuna

Where there are many types of Tuna, over half of the food in the United States called "tuna" isn't really tuna at all. Which happens at both the supermarket and at restaurants as well.  The fish known as escolar is commonly called tuna, and they have been known to cause health problems in humans.
