Dominion Group International: Food Standards Agency Issued a Warning on Seaweed

The British Food Standards Agency released a warning about a particular kind of seaweed. The consumers were warned not to eat the seaweed called Hijiki.

Hijiki is a seaweed that has been found to contain abnormally high levels of inorganic arsenic. This is a chemical element that is harmful to the body. The substance is known to greatly increase the risk of cancer cells. This kind of seaweed is a very dark, with a shredded appearance. In Japan, it is traditionally eaten as an appetizer. However, it is not a common ingredient used in sushi. A lot of Chinese restaurants also don’t use it as an ingredient for their cuisine.

Popularity of hijiki

The popularity of the specific seaweed originated from a folklore in Japan. It is said that the consumption of hijiki benefits the health and beauty. The traditional myths also say that the seaweed can help in thick hair growth and make it look shinier.

The hijiki can be used in, salads, soups and other vegetarian and vegan dishes. This ingredient can be found in the specialty section of many supermarkets. It can also be found in Asian specialty stores and health food stores.

Hijiki’s negative effects

The Food Standards Agency carried out a study to find the negative effects of this food ingredient. According to the examination they conducted, the hijiki contains an inorganic arsenic in a form that naturally occurs in some foods. They also conducted a survey to test and review the contents of arame, kombu, nori, and wakame which are other types of seaweed. However, there’s no inorganic arsenic found in the mentioned types of seaweed.

As said by the Food Standards Agency, consuming a small amount or eating hijiki occasionally will unlikely raise the considerable risk of getting cancer. However, they advised the consumers to stop purchasing and eating it to prevent the possibilities of getting sick. The also advised the people to choose from the other four types of seaweed rather than of including hijiki in their meals.

Currently, the Britain and the European Union have not yet placed a ban in selling hijiki. The British agency has contacted the EU about taking the necessary actions to prohibit the sale of the particular seaweed.

Britain’s independent scientific board called the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment has concluded that people should consume as little inorganic arsenic as possible. In that way, they could avoid the harmful effects of the substance and lower the risks of getting ill. The organic form of arsenic is far less harmful compared to the inorganic ones found in hijiki. The organic arsenic can be found in many food products including cereals, baked goods, fruit, meat, poultry, and vegetables.

Dominion Group International: Review on Japan’s Supplement Products

Some dietary supplement products from Japan has been tested by ConsumerLab. Among the nine brands of alpha lipoic acid supplements, one contained none of the ingredients while another contained only 81%.

ConsumerLab, a provider of consumer information and independent evaluations of products, found most of them to meet the claims as they contain the alpha lipoic acid. The private company that tested the supplements is a based in New York. The supplement brands were manufactured and purchased from Japan. Based on their examination, there is one brand that contains none of the ingredients but has been printed on the ingredients list.

What is alpha lipoic acid?

In Japan, the alpha lipoic acid was approved as a food ingredient. It was promoted for its ability to help in weight loss and provide anti-ageing effects. Its popularity surged when a popular Japanese television program endorsed the food ingredient.

The effects of the ingredient have not been well demonstrated. A lot of people bought the products claiming that it contains the alpha lipoic acid. There were studies that it helps in lowering blood sugar. It is also used as a way to treat neuropathies in people with diabetes.

The Japanese consumers were compelled to try the dietary supplements. However, they tend to purchase the products before doing their own research. Due to its popularity, the consumers are at risk of getting ripped-off. There are many fraud products available in the market that are harmful to use. The food and drug administration gives a warning to people about buying dietary supplements from unregistered or unrecognised sellers.

People who intend to take a supplement should check the quality of a specific product. Before trying out dietary supplements or other types of non-prescribed drug, they should understand the side effects and drug interactions.

Tested products

There are different variations of dietary supplements made in Japan which contains CoQ10, Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, Multivitamins, and Probiotics. All the nine branded products were selected by ConsumerLab and tested it for their levels of alpha lipoic acid. It was also tested for potential contamination with heavy metals such as cadmium, arsenic lead, and mercury. The testing that was made was based on the methods recommended in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia.

Among the various products that went under testing, the approved ones cost about 47.50 yen to as much as 311 yen, depending on the suggested retail price of 100 mg serving. The highest priced supplement has failed the testing which has a price of 370 yen for 100 mg of CoQ10. According to the examination, it only delivers 81 mg of the said ingredient.

Under the ConsumerLab’s test and review, they have found that the amounts of alpha lipoic acid in two products did not state how much it contained the ingredient.

Dominion Group International: How to Avoid Getting Ripped-Off in Tokyo Restaurants

Japan is one of the countries with a low crime rate. Although a lot of Japanese that are kind-hearted and honest, there’s still some who have bad motives when it comes to business.

Get to experience the modern technology fused with Japan’s history and culture in Tokyo. It is the capital of Japan wherein you can find a lot of establishments from day and night. It is a must-see place when you’re visiting the country. A lot of shops and restaurants can be found in the area. However, people still need to have an attentive eye because fraudsters may be lurking for their next target.

Japan is proud to have a delectable cuisine. You can try out different restaurants in Tokyo but keep an eye out because you may fall for a Tokyo restaurant scam.

Ways to avoid restaurant scam

Most locals and a lot of tourists prefer to dine at a restaurant than cook their own meals. It is convenient compared to cooking your own food at home. Nowadays, restaurants are also used as a part of a fraud activity.

You can opt for an affordable eating place or go to a luxurious restaurant to have your meal. Even if there are a lot of selections, it is suggested to wary of the restaurants you choose when it comes to your food. You may probably fall for a restaurant scam if you notice these signs:

If a wait staff usher you quickly in the restaurant without even saying yes.
If you end up not feeling right about the menu or wait staff, don’t be afraid to get up and leave if you’ve been brought into a restaurant.
The pictures on the menu don’t match what you ordered. Most of the time, the picture shows what they will serve. There you’ll see how many pieces or how big is the serving size of the food you ordered.
The taste of the foods you order is tasteless. The restaurant may have used low-quality ingredients or haven’t properly prepared your food.
Check if the staff treats the Japanese customers and foreigners differently.
Review the prices on the menu and the items on your bill to know if they give you the right bill. There’s a chance that they add items you didn’t even order. Get a hold of the menu to calculate how much you spent. If there are discrepancies in the total bill, try to contest the cost.
To take note of the prices, you can ask about taxes and extra fees. If it doesn’t match the bill and you noticed triple or quadruple the cost, you probably you got scammed.
Always ask for an official receipt. If they don’t hand you one, there’s a big risk that they overpriced your bill.

The law of Japan states that the menu prices should include taxes and other charges. This Japanese law is created to avoid fraud and false pricing. It is also a way against misrepresentation. If you have an odd feeling about the place, the best thing to do is to avoid or leave the restaurant before you order anything.

Dominion Group International: Restaurants in Japan Tied to Scam

In 2013, some restaurants in Japan have been linked to food scam. Their menu has deceived the diners and lied about their profit.

Hankyu Hanshin Hotels Co. disclosed that dozens of its restaurants misrepresented the food on their menus. The “revelations” that emerged affected several other establishments around the nation that did the same thing.

The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Osaka, another famous hotel, along with the Renaissance Sapporo Hotel in Hokkaido also admitted in using some ingredients and products that are cheaper and low quality. They did not use the premium items to cook the meals advertised on their menus. Another prestigious accommodation, the Imperial Hotel Ltd., admitted they had served frozen juice that was labelled as “fresh” at the restaurants in their Tokyo and Osaka branches.

According to the Renaissance Sapporo General Manager Hiroshi Harata, they call the big prawns as Japanese tiger and the small ones as ‘shiba’ shrimp. In reality, the hotel was using cheap shrimp at its Chinese restaurant. It is far different from the shrimp they had listed on their menu.

The Imperial Hotel admitted that they had served orange and grapefruit juices from May 2006 until May 2007. They disclosed that the freshly squeezed juice was procured in frozen form from a Tokyo supplier. Due to controversy, the hotel now serves their “fresh” juices using freshly squeezed fruits.

The high-end restaurants in luxury hotels often promote their sophisticated services, along with the quality of their food products. However, their air of exclusivity may not match the costs in the kitchen. The government has imposed the regulations on food labelling. The directive also includes the posting the origin of the products for the items sold in their shops. However, the regulations of the government do not apply to restaurant menus.

The food fraud cases in Japan fall under the scope of a general law. The Consumers Affairs Agency studies about the cases. It is linked to the competition policy law that prevents all types of businesses from mislabelling their products. The credibility of the restaurant menus can only be left in the hands of those who run the food business.

The menu serves as one of the promotional materials of the restaurants. It entices the diners because it depicts the ingredients they use to cook their meals. However, this is false advertising which has also surfaced at other restaurants in Japan. The Shikoku Railway Co. subsidiary in Tokushima and Ehime prefectures, as well as the hotels in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, and Otsu, Shiga Prefecture, admitted that they have also fooled the people using their menu.

Food labelling can easily be confused with upscale products that are regulated by the Agricultural Standards Law. The sad thing is, a lot of restaurants think they are above the law. They are also above the new food labelling law that includes the Agricultural Standards Law. According to the government, they restaurants are unregulated which empowers them to trick the customers with their menu scam.

Dominion Group International: Spotting Scam Cruise Deal

If you received travel awards or won a free cruise, it seems like a great news. However, before you collect on your prize, better to check the legitimacy of the deal. In 2011, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) retrieved over 1,300 complaints regarding cruise line deals and free-cruise scams.

There were companies that engage in free-cruise schemes that require the customers to comply with extra charges and deposits. But what’s worse is the people who paid the fees did not receive the services promised.

Fraud offers

Not every cruise deal is a scam but you have to make sure that the prize is legitimate. A cruise serves as a means of transportation and a destination resort, as well. Don’t fall victim to certain cruise scams so you won’t suffer some of the problems. You can look for signs to determine whether the free cruise is the real deal or it’s a fraud offer.

Cybercriminals get their profit by targeting travellers and offering them a fraud travel offer. It can be enticing to some because who can resist free or discounted deals? However, instead of saving money, the fraudsters stole the money and never send out the promised deal.

‘Free cruise’ scam dominates the reports of fraudulent offers online. It is a potentially dangerous scam that can compromise the customer’s identity, as well as other personal details. The scam involves asking their targets to open a link and fill out the required information for the upcoming cruise. This can endanger the victims’ identity and the computer or mobile devices they’re using, especially if the e-mail or the link contains malware.

Avoiding scam

Winning a travel prize requires a lot of luck. Even though not all travel offers are considered a scam, it’s still important to be vigilant about the situation so you can avoid getting involved in any fraudulent travel offer.

Before you comply, you need to research the name of the travel agency that gives you the cruise deal. You also have to look for the name of the agent and other company titles listed on the cruise offer. Consult trust rating websites like BBB and check the consumer’s evaluation to see if the offer has received a bad review. Using these resources, you may also find some names on the offer which might be associated with a scam.

Study the details of the offer and check if there are accommodations and services included. Check the fees and charges too. There might be some demand specifics for you to redeem the prize. If it involves paying a suspicious amount, it’s probably a fraud offer.

Getting on a cruise can give a wonderful experience but a scam can morph the dream to disaster. The motive of cybercriminals behind this type of scam waste the people’s time and money.

Individuals who are a part of hiring hubs have the capability to select applicants with the potential to fulfil the job responsibilities.

But what would happen if the problem stems from the critical process of recruitment? Potential employees and workforce have wasted their time, effort, and even resources to complete the process. There were innocent people applying for a job who filed a complaint against the individuals who gave them false hopes.

Recruitment failure

In India, there was an incendiary case called as the ‘teachers’ recruitment scam’. It is popularly known in the country as “Vyapam scam”. The term “Vyapam” is a Hindi acronym that came from Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal which is translated as the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB).

It was a controversial case because it was an admission and recruitment scam that involves politicians, senior officials, as well as businessmen in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It was a self-financed autonomous organisation run by the State government. The group was responsible for conducting several nationwide entrance tests.

The Vyapam conducted 13 different exams for the selection of medical students and state government employees. This also includes other employments such as school teachers, police personnel, food inspectors transport constables, forest guards, and dairy supply officers. Around 3.2 million students have taken the examination.

The people who applied for the so-called recruitment workshop stayed in the location for more than a year. According to their reports, the man who recruited them said he will be providing workshops that increase their chance to be recruited to the military. The conman asked for a fee of R200 to R300 for his services.

The case is handled by the Gauteng Department of Social Development. According to the investigation, the conman was running a fraud operation from his house. He was also operating his workshop in the Wonder Park area.

The authorities gave a warning to all job seekers to become vigilant in looking for jobs. Criminals take advantage of the lack of employment opportunities and unemployment rate. They can pretend as a recruiter or recruitment agency to deceive people to join their illegal operation.
