Agency Allows Unsafe Levels of Contaminants in Seafood

The FDA's science in seafood safety was flawed according to a NRDC study. They found that FDA’s calculation of allowable levels of contaminants in seafood, after BP's 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, was based on outdated science. As a result, FDA’s “safe levels” were not safe for vulnerable populations. More reason to enhance our food safety regulations!
