California sues seafood company for suspected lead and cadmium

California sues seafood company for suspected lead and cadmium

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Tuesday sued five seafood companies, alleging they sold fish containing lead and cadmium in the state without legally required warnings.

The lawsuit says the California Department of Justice found unacceptable levels of lead or cadmium in fresh and frozen clams, cuttlefish, eels, octopus, oysters, periwinkles and sea squirts.

The defendants named in the lawsuit are seafood importers, distributors and wholesalers, including Clearwater Seafoods, Rhee Bros., Seaquest Seafood Corporation, Jayone Foods and Pacific American Fish Company.

Emails left with companies requesting comment were not immediately returned.

The lawsuit also claims the companies violated California’s Unfair Competition Law and its prohibition on fraudulent business practices.
