In actuality 33% of all fish has mercury levels higher than what is considered safe.
100% of all fish in the united states has mercury in them, they just tested every body of water in the country.
Only Alaska still has untainted seafood...It would be wise to give up any form of tuna completely,they said large fish were the worst affected; like swordfish and tuna,salmon these days has other problems besides being highly infected with mercury poisoning, ;BUYER BEWARE THESE DAYS;ABSOLUTELY
thanks Cal, hope your week is getting better;)

That's just horrible to know, it makes me wonder if the problem extends worldwide too. I'm glad I don't eat fish!

The inspection of seafood in this country is abysmal. Since it will cost money (gasp! more reckless Democrat spending), I wouldn't expect a change anytime soon. Thanks Cal.

I don't eat flesh, no meat, chicken or fish.

And I sure am glad!

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I've worried about this for some time, so I'm really glad to see this info. No fish for me either because of all this.
