Multiple independent lab tests confirm oil in Gulf shrimp

The federal government is going out of its way to assure the public that seafood pulled from recently reopened Gulf of Mexico waters is safe to consume, in spite of the largest accidental release of crude oil in America's history.

However, testing methodologies used by the government to deem areas of water safe for commercial fishing are woefully inadequate and permit high levels of toxic compounds to slip into the human food chain, according to a series of scientific and medical professionals interviewed by Raw Story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Federal government's response to this disaster was to get it out of sight and out of mind before the elections, no matter what harm had been done to the people or the seafood here.

After all, BP was one of the most significant contributors to Obama's 08 campaign, and therefore had to be protected at all costs!
