Draft Revised Advisories.
Attached are a series of draft advisories directed toward pregnant women, women who may become pregnant, nursing mothers and young children about the risks of mercury in fish and shellfish.
The three drafts represent an iterative process based on feedback from focus groups.
Draft 1: Initial advisory tested at focus groups in Maryland
Draft 2. Second draft advisory tested at focus groups in Louisiana
Draft 3. Third draft advisory tested at focus groups in Washington.
This process of focus group testing and further revision of the draft advisory is still underway. A full report of the process will be presented at the Food Advisory Committee meeting in December 2003.
