Crude Oil Found In Oysters At North Carolina Restaurant (Video)

Watch as a young diner in North Carolina details his experience finding crude oil in raw oysters harvested from the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite the FDA claims that seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is safe for human consumption, reports of crude oil and other toxic substances found inside shrimp, fish, crabs and other seafood are becoming increasingly common thanks to the tragic BP oil spill.

Tests showed the substance in the oysters was mud.

I feel badly for the restaurant owners and the fishermen in the Gulf, but I've read of several independent scientific studies that found oil and dispersants, etc. in Gulf seafood. This stuff is going to be around for decades before the Gulf can cleanse itself. And probably we'll have another spill to reinfect us all over again. Am I a cynic? No, merely a realist. We are not over this, but BP is over cleaning up.

FDA claims shmaims...I'm not sure I trust the FDA. I'd rather err on the side of caution and not take the FDA's word that it's safe.

Let the politicians (and their families) eat Gulf seafood each day to show us it is ok before we subject our families to pollution.

just as they lied about new york's 911 contamination, so they lie about gulf seafood, to wesh out on compensation, typical oil cartel/govt criminal practice that has become standard operational procedure because domesticated brainwashed zombies called citizens allow it. Just like mass murder with DU WMDs and torture, and invading other lands to steal resources, and bullying other countries while uttering bullshit about freedom and democracy. Demockery more like it, even before the patriot act and homeland security. No wonder all other nations are dumping the dollar and buying from someone else. Who'd support evil with their wallet? Not i.
