No Furrin Catfish for me!

June 29, 2007 by

If it does not say US, it is not 100% American catfish, or so says the Catfish Marketing Association, which is just oh so concerned about your health, and also very concerned that that Chinese catfish is about 2/3 cheaper than that raised in Alabama. The CMA was the real power behind the FDA’s decision to ban Chinese catfish imports into the US, since, of course, restaurants and grocers have no problem selling food that makes people sick as dogs. Oh and more more thing. The FDA says: “there was no immediate threat to human health” but it did find slight traces of something that when pump into lab rats in massive doses sometimes made them unhappy. Let’s hope those lab rats are 100% American too!

who cares who was behind the testing, you would be a idiot to eat something not knowing what it was.
yes the china fish is cheaper, so you can save money to pay you doctor or maybe your casket.

I agree with the point of the article, but for future reference, please provide facts about the chemicals pumped into the catfish. What were the doses in the fish and in the test rats? Do you have testimonials by scientists stating your case? Silly sarcasm has no place in an argument about cancer. It will fail to sway anyone reading this with an objective mind.

Furthermore, I come here for objective thought, and not Austrian School cheerleading.

Just as an aside. If you eat something that is a bottom feeder, you should EXPECT to get sick.

I think the Jewish people had a point with only eating seafood that had fins and scales. Catfish have no scales. All the healthy fish to eat have both fins and scales. Maybe there is something to eating Kosher.
