Effects of the Oil Spill: From the Seafood to the Fishermen

Is it safe to eat seafood at this time following the oil spill?
Lately, while grocery shopping I've wondered about the safety of eating seafood and what effects the spill has had on the sea-life and the fishermen. Trav and I have purchased some seafood since the spill, although probably not as much as we would have had we not had the thoughts and images of the environmental tragedy. You have to think... Have many fish become contaminated? Are fishermen fishing anywhere near the spill? What test and safety precautions are being done?

Today, I came across a post on Whole Foods Market's blog, Whole Story. It gave me some peace of mind about eating seafood in these weeks and months following the spill, at least seafood from their stores. I'm glad Whole Foods has a passion for supporting honest, hard working companies and providing safe, healthy food!

Are you concerned about the safety of eating seafood after the oil spill?
