Current KY standing individual fish consumption advisories

2016-02-17 - Frankfort, KY - Photo Commonwealth of Kentucky, Cabinet for Health & Family Services..
A more restrictive guidance for fish consumption is recommended for these waterbodies in Kentucky, above, has been issued. It should be noted that this advisory uses criteria that are more stringent than the FDA action level of 1 ppm methyl mercury in the edible portion of fish (fresh, frozen or processed). The FDA's jurisdiction in setting action levels is limited to contaminants in food shipped and marketed in interstate commerce, not food that is caught locally by recreational or subsistence fishers. Less than 1 percent of the fish sampled in Kentucky for this study exceeded the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) action levels for commercial fish sold in grocery stores or restaurants. - Commonwealth of Kentucky, Cabinet for Health & Family Services.
