Check That Fish On Your Grill!

The FDA has issued a warning to consumers not to buy or eat imported fish labeled as "monkfish."   The fish actually may be "puffer fish" (also known as "blow fish"), which contains a deadly neurotoxin and can be deadly if improperly prepared. (Fans of "The Simpsons," may recall the "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish" episode, in which Homer eats a piece of improperly prepared blowfish.).  The Chicago Tribune reported that a woman in Chicago became extremely ill after eating the mislabeled fish. 

So, in the interest of backyard cookout safety, be sure to check that fish before you grill today!

Happy Memorial Day!
