Explanation:
without the proper context it's hard to tell but it appears to me frodi is the english equivalent for frauds but obviously cannot be used for food. Ciao PC

misrepresentation


Explanation:
in this context it seems that the Italian "frodi" means food whose description, denomination, weight, date or labeling does not correspond to its true nature.

food safety


Explanation:
Ho fatto un giro presso il sito della Canadian Food Inspection Agency (vedi sotto). Mi sono resa conto che non esiste un termine univoco in inglese per rendere frode alimentare. Forse il modo migliore di renderlo e' con il concetto, molto ampio in inglese, di food safety che copre diversi aspetti.
