Carol Browner, left, Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, announced a live chat today at 2 p.m. with Dr. Jane Lubchenco, right, Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), about the safety of seafood from the Gulf region.

Browner states:

"The Federal Government is paying close attention to the safety of seafood in the Gulf. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and NOAA, working closely with the states, are closely monitoring and testing the Gulf waters so they can be reopened as soon as they become safe.

Seafood from these open areas is safe for you and your family to eat. In fact, if you’re looking for a simple way to support the people of the Gulf who have been battered by this spill, enjoying some local seafood is one of the best things you can do."
