Study: Gulf oil spill still a threat to seafood safety
BY FRED TASKER
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill still poses threats to human health and seafood safety, according to a study published Monday by the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Medical Association.
The report comes two days after President Obama and members of his family swam in the Gulf at Panama City Beach and ate fish caught there, and hours after this year’s commercial shrimping season officially kicked off along the Louisiana coast.
Federal officials disputed the new report and said ongoing testing is aggressive and sufficient to protect public health.
