Inside Edition Wins Top Reporting Award for Food Investigation Series

Our team tested lobster, lamb, Kobe beef and Parmesan cheese and found surprising results.

Inside Edition is proud to announce it's been honored with a top reporting award for its food investigation series.

The investigations team won first place in the broadcast business and consumer reporting category at the 2017 National Headliner Awards.

Our team tested lobster, lamb and Kobe beef at restaurants across the U.S. and found some were serving cheaper substitutes. They also tested pre-grated Parmesan cheese and found that some contained an additive derived from wood pulp.

Inside Edition’s honorees include Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero, Producer Larry Posner, Videographer/Editor Filip Kapsa and Associate Producer Scott Phillips.
