Food Network listens to public outcry
I would like to see a policy in which the Food Network removes recipes featuring shark as an ingredient from Foodnetwork.com and other Food Network-owned Web sites and vows to not publish any shark recipes in the magazine or online. Additionally, shark should not be displayed as food on Food Network television programming.Please become a leader in shark conservation. Put a firm "no-shark" policy in place at the Food Network.
As a policy, Food Network and Cooking Channel do not incorporate or showcase recipes that involve animals on endangered species list or the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch list, with the recent addition of sharks to those watch lists, we will make sure that future content does not highlight shark as an ingredient. We understand there are many species with sustainability concerns, and we make efforts to stay informed and pass that information onto our audience. - Susan Stockton, Food Network Kitchens.
