This administration must begin to act in the consumers' best interests. It should be mandatory that imports of all edible products, like shrimp, be tested at a much greater percentage than is tested now. Given the enormous percentage of large predatgory fish that are contaminated with high levels of mercury, and the probability (not possibility) of chemical contamination of shrimp, lobster, and other "farm" raised sea creatures, it should be a "no-brainer" to test a LARGE percentage of all of these imported products to protect the American public. It's a real shame that we seem to be protecting warlords in Afghanistan so their record poppy crops are protected, instead of American consumers. The list of foreign people and corporations that are being protected, instead of the people of America, is so long as to be obscene. Start protecting Americans, instead of foreigners and corporate greed.
