In some cases, the FDA let through foods with 10,000 times too much contamination. The federal Agency is also accused of not identifying the risks for children and pregnant mothers. It appears the FDA used faulty assumptions and obsolete risk assessment methods.
President Obama also entered new waters by declaring--and demonstrating--that seafood coming from the Gulf remains safe to eat. The President ate mini crab cakes, fried shrimp, and shrimp salad sandwiches for lunch on Monday during his tour of the region and told reporters the seafood was "delicious." "This is important for consumers who need to know that their food is safe, but it's also important for the fishermen and processors who need to be able to sell their products with confidence," Obama said. "I'm announcing a comprehensive, coordinated and multi-agency initiative to ensure that seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is safe to eat." President Obama said, during a press conference in Gulfport, Mississippi Monday. "So let me be clear. Seafood from the Gulf today is safe to eat." After a seafood-filled lunch, President Obama ended the day at Tacky Jack's seafood restaurant in Orange Beach, Alabama, where he ordered crab claws, crawfish tails, and seafood salad for dinner to again drive home the point that consumers shouldn't worry about seafood from the region. The President's emphasis on seafood coincided with an interagency announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on enhanced efforts, including precautionary closures and increased seafood testing to ensure seafood coming from the Gulf is safe to eat.

Not surprising. You already know that the FDA serves business interests instead of the people.
Why do we pay taxes again?

Are you telling me that you refuse to believe the same people who allow aspartame, fluoride, mercury and all the other junk into our food supply?
How dare you!
Everything is alright, the FDA cares about you.
