Consumer Reports Advises Pregnant Women Avoid Eating Canned Tuna

(Undated) -- Consumer Reports is advising that pregnant women not eat any canned tuna due to the potential for mercury exposure, which can harm a person's brain and nervous system. Consumer Reports disagrees with a guideline put out by both the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency. Those agencies list canned tuna as a low-mercury seafood option for women who are pregnant or nursing. The FDA and Consumer Reports agree that expectant women can safely eat salmon, shrimp and tilapia.
