Abstract: NEW YORK — These fillets don't pass the smell test. Close to half of the seafood sold in New York City is wrongly labeled, meaning many shoppers may have no idea what they're actually eating, state officials found. More than 42 percent of seafood in city supermarkets was sold as a different type than the package actually contained, according to the findings of a landmark investigation by the state Attorney General's Office.
