Environmental organizations have confirmed that many oysters are contaminated with oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill along the Louisiana coast. These discoveries directly contradicts theÂ persistentÂ statements from the Government that the Gulf’s seafood is safe to eat.
Though no oil wasÂ noticeableÂ on the oysters, high levels of hydrocarbons were detected within the various animal species tested. DHH officials have said that “minute levels have been detected” and “what we have found is extremely low [amounts].”
