Lockyer vs. tuna fish



Last year California attorney general Bill Lockyer, of french-fry-suit fame, filed a Proposition 65 lawsuit demanding that tuna suppliers put warnings on their cans cautioning consumers that the product may contain trace residues of mercury. At the AEI Federalism Project's AG Watch, Will Wilson points out that the federal Food and Drug Administration fired off a letter to Lockyer taking him to task for misunderstanding federal labeling law, and also correcting his view of certain nutritional realities.
