ABSTRACT

Seafood Safety: Background and Issues [January 30, 2008]   [open pdf - 71KB]

From the Summary: "Congress is paying renewed attention to the safety of fish and shellfish, some of which have been associated with foodborne illnesses and can contain environmental contaminants. Among the issues for lawmakers is whether current food safety programs are sufficiently protecting consumers, and if not, what changes should be considered. Another complexity is that most U.S. consumption is from imports. Seafood safety is being considered along with a number of broader food safety issues in the 110th Congress, where hearings and legislation are anticipated in the second session."
