California's right-to-know law obligates grocers selling seafood to label any mercury-contaminated product. However, outside of California, there is no such requirement.

Mercury, a dangerous neurotoxin, has been known to cause birth defects and disabilities in children. It is also responsible for a variety to health problems in adults and adolescents, such as disrupted brain development.

What can you do to help ensure that mercury contaminate seafood is labelled? Write to the CEO of Safeway, the company that posts warning signs in California grocery stores, Steven Burd. You can also take more immediate action by limiting your intake of shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock, and catfish.
