FDA: Farmed Fish Okay
If the FDA says its okay, then it must be good—right? Yeah, that’s debatable. Anyway, remember how it was reported that farmed fished had been also exposed to the pet food contaminate melamine? No worries, the FDA now claims the fish is fine to eat—very fishy if you ask me. Randolph E. Schmid of the Associated Press reports:
The two fish farms that used the feed kept their fish off the market until the tests could be completed.
Dr. David Acheson, assistant commissioner for food protection, said fish being raised at Kona Blue in Hawaii and American Gold Seafoods in Washington state were found negative for the chemical melamine.
The questionable feed was also sold to 196 fish hatcheries. Because those fish are small and the feed has been recalled, Acheson said the FDA believes there no longer is any public health concern from them.
The FDA on Tuesday cleared for use 56,000 pigs given feed that included scraps of pet food contaminated with melamine.
