What are your thoughts on this?

I seen this on two FB groups I'm on and wondering if all sardine companies are affected? Coarse it could issue with other fish caught in that area too..

For now only canned fish I give is salmon and mackerel..

I would think all fish in the area would have some degree of contamination. Sardines are feeder fish after all.

Here is another article on the subject of fish from Japan.

Well, even with salmon and mackerel you are not looking at a good deal. Salmon and mackerel also come from the same place in the pacific ocean as the sardines.

Thanks a lot Maxwell for your nice response.

I posted this to get opinions on this and if anyone knew more on it.

So Alaskan caned salmon bad?

Still I much rather give caned salmon over sardines.

Saya only gets it as every so often treat not often.
