Editorial: Need for crackdown to stop selling the customer short

After the discovery of 'fake' vodka in a number of pubs and other outlets the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has warned retailers that they are responsible for the products sold in their outlets.

Happily the vodka in question does not appear to be harmful, but is clearly counterfeit and has a lower alcohol content than the genuine brand.

While the FSAI has declared that a 'small quantity' of the spirit is on sale it has declined to tell consumers the names of pubs and shops where it was sold, on the basis that this would jeopardise its investigation.
