Consumer advocacy group recommends not serving tuna to children
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Children may be ingesting high levels of Mercury with their tuna fish sandwiches at school and at home. That’s according to research by the Mercury Policy Report – a consumer advocacy group.
MPP tested the Mercury content of nearly 60 samples of canned tuna.
The group says albacore or white tuna can triple a child’s Mercury exposure. They recommend schools and parents not serve it.
The group also says children under 55 pounds should limit tuna to one meal, once a month; twice a month for children over that weight. No child should eat tuna every day.
