Despite the fact that Colorado is a landlocked state, fresh seafood is readily available for purchase in many local grocery stores and markets. As with any fresh-food product, it is important to know how to select, store and cook seafood safely.
Although many state and federal agencies as well as food processors and distributors work diligently to ensure that seafood sold in the United States is safe, it is still important for consumers to take an active role in seafood safety from purchase to preparation. Follow these guidelines and become savvy about seafood safety.
For more information about seafood safety, contact the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at 1-888-SAFEFOOD or visit their Web site at www.cfsan.fda.gov.
