That sounds like a much better approach, what really troubles me from the Florida article is that half of the money will be spent on marketing that
it's good to go, they are even seeking some positive plugs from the White House in this situation.
I feel for the area, the fishermen, shrimpers etc, and think that BP should pay them to continue the harvesting, so more comprehensive testing can be
done, and data collected, not on a small scale, but a much larger one.
I think the Gov'ts approach (smell test), is due to the fact that the harvest is perishable and has to get to market quickly to be of any use.
That's not a good enough excuse for me to skip a better testing criteria, especially when they are supposed to be certifying food safety
I know this winter has been tough on the Gulf area crops, and continued fear of the seafood and beaches can have a devastating effect on businesses in
the region, but the safety of the folks should be paramount.
