Re: “Law Firm Challenges Seafood Safety Claims

We are working hard to test our seafood and properly ensure its safety. It is time for Louisiana businesses to restore our seafood industry, our restaurants and the image of our state. Gulf seafood still has a perception problem but the reality is Gulf Seafood is safe and plentiful.

The FDA operates a mandatory safety program for all seafood products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and Public Health Service Act. This program includes research, inspection, compliance, enforcement, outreach and the development of regulations and industry guidance for seafood.

Current scientific data from this sophisticated testing indicate Gulf Seafood is safe to eat.

Three departments in the State of Louisiana – the Departments of Environmental Quality, the Department of Health and Hospitals, and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries participate in seafood safety testing programs.

The FDA is working closely with NOAA put in place strong safety criteria to protect vulnerable populations, including children, pregnant women, and subsistence fishing communities.
