Consumers Win Major Victory Over Seafood Scaremongers
David Martosko, the Director of Research for the Center for Consumer Freedom, reacted to the news with this statement:
“The Appellate Court outcome is another huge victory for consumers in this case. For the second time, judges have rightly decided that giving fish the skull-and-crossbones treatment would cause more harm than good.
In a report titled “Tuna Meltdown” the Center for Consumer Freedom found that over a quarter-million underprivileged American children were born at risk of having abnormally low IQs since the year 2000 because their low-income mothers were scared to eat fish during their pregnancies. This, says CCF, is partially the result of exaggerated government mercury warnings.
A case summary and other details about today’s consumer victory on People ex rel. v. Tri-Union Seafoods LLC et al. is available on the California Appellate Courts website under case number A116792.
