Health officials in the U.S. have warned that the growing demand for raw fish in the country’s coastal regions may pose a serious risk to public health.
The Associated Press obtained a summary of the department of health’s warning, which said the rising demand for seafood in the coastal areas, including California, New York, and Massachusetts, poses a serious threat to public safety.
The report said the risk to people and animals is highest when seafood is transported in water with high concentrations of contaminants.
The highest concentrations are found in the areas that are hardest hit by the recent California wildfires, which are also considered the most intense wildfire season on record.
The risk to human health is highest in regions where people live, work, or play.
The report says this is particularly true in the southernmost parts of the United States where people spend a significant amount of time in coastal areas.
The coastal areas include California, Florida, New Jersey, Virginia, and New York state.
The AP spoke to the public health officials about the threat posed by the growing popularity of seafood in coastal communities.
The first warning was issued in February of this year.
In the meantime, the department has issued an advisory on its website that warns of a risk to the general public when seafood consumption exceeds the recommended daily allowance of fish.
The department also warned that consuming raw fish has become a popular way to eat seafood and is becoming increasingly popular in communities.
It noted that in a 2015 survey of seafood restaurants, more than two-thirds of the seafood establishments reported serving raw seafood.
The Department of Health also warns that raw seafood consumption can cause health problems for people.
In the past, there have been reports of people consuming raw seafood to combat the flu.
In October of this last year, a Florida man who was on his way to his mother’s house died after consuming raw shrimp and raw tuna in a hotel bathroom, according to WESH-TV.
