Ra­zor­fish warn­ing

The Galloway News - - GALLOW@Y VIEW -

A “risk to hu­man health” has led to the tem­po­rary clo­sure of a ra­zor­fish pro­duc­tion area.

The coun­cil is “strongly ad­vis­ing” peo­ple not to gather ra­zor­fish for hu­man con­sump­tion in the area that cov­ers Fleet Bay and Fleet Is­lands, Kirkcud­bright Bay and Wig­town Bay.

A coun­cil spokesman said: There are spe­cific rules for con­trols on animal food prod­ucts in­tended for hu­man con­sump­tion and the clo­sure is be­cause in­suf­fi­cient sam­ples have been sub­mit­ted for analysis to demon­strate that the ra­zor­fish are fit for hu­man con­sump­tion.

“The coun­cil will con­tinue to an­a­lyse sam­ples and re­view the sit­u­a­tion.”

Food pro­duc­ers can check the lat­est sta­tus by calling 01776 888 410.
