FDA Says Canned Light Tuna LESS Mercury

Excerpt from article on FDA Study of Mercury in finned fish:

"They recommend only 6 ounces—that is, one average meal—of canned albacore tuna. That distinction is based on the most recent results of an FDA study that shows that the canned albacore variety has more mercury than canned light tuna does. On average, canned albacore contained mercury at 0.35 parts per million, while light tuna had 0.12 ppm."
