Sure, you can tell if it is covered in oil, but you can't tell if it is safe to eat.
The oil-eating microbes and filter fish are being eaten by bigger and bigger predators up to and including humans. Therefore, it is not what's on
the outside of the fish that concerns me. It is what's on the inside that counts!!
You would think that FDA would be the very people demanding strict scrutiny, but instead they are driven by headlines and profit margins. They don't
want to do or say anything that could hurt the economy, so they say some silly bs like this?
If I eat some tainted fish, and I get sick or die, but there are 5 witnesses to account for me "smelling" of it first, who do I get to sue? I'm
sure no food manufacturer in the world would get away with this in a court of law. Imagine the defense attorney telling the judge and jury that the
food must have been fine if it smelled good enough to eat?
Our FDA can say this outlandish stuff, but regular people and businesses can't get away with it.
