Government agencies never cease to stupify me.
No seafood may legally be imported from China for fear that the fish may be “on drugs.” The FDA’s ban includes all catfish, eel, and shrimp among others for fear that they may have been treated with antibiotics unapproved for human consumption in the U.S.
That’s funny because certain insecticidal protiens have been deemed unfit for human consumption, yet they are still used as livestock feed. How do these government agencies decide which toxic substances may be sold as food and which can’t? Got me.
In the end, at least there will be less seafood available.
