business news in context, analysis with attitude

Time reports that both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have said that “96% of relevant Gulf of Mexico waters became available for commercial and recreational fishing — up from 37% during the worst of the Gulf oil spill.”

"The overwhelming majority of the seafood tested shows no detectable residue, and not one of the samples shows a residue level that would be harmful for humans," Margaret A. Hamburg, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said in a statement. "There is no question Gulf seafood coming to market is safe from oil or dispersant residue."
