On Thursday I wrote about our latest victory in the seafood contamination campaign -- Costco has agreed to post the FDA's warnings about mercury in seafood.
As the blog points out, the campaign has been quite successful. In 2006, Oceana published a report finding that only about 12% of the major grocery stores nationwide were posting vital information on mercury. Two years later, we have a new report out, Super Markets, which shows a tripling of that figure to 36% of major stores posting the FDA advice.
This is great news for consumers -- wouldn't you like to know if you're about to ingest a neurotoxin?
