From the Vault: FDA Official Calls Independent Research on Seafood Contamination “Junk Science� – But Government Agencies Use Same Methodology and Lab | Stuart H. Smith [cached]

I take particular issue with recent comments from Don Kraemer, FDA's Deputy Director in the Office of Food Safety, that he and his agency are concerned about media reports that give credibility to what the FDA calls "junk science" and questionable lab tests. At a recent meeting with Louisiana seafood-industry leaders, Kraemer reportedly said: "We're working now to address independent reports that aren't scientifically sound. He, of course, did not mention any specific reports, but simply cast doubt on ALL independent research that exposes seafood contamination.

Marco Kaltofen, a civil engineer and a leading member of my research team, had this to say in response to Mr. Kraemer: "Our independent tests use the same laboratory and the same methodology as is used by response agencies and their contractors.
So in other words, Mr. Kraemer, if our research is "junk science" so is yours, because our methodology is the same, and we use the very same laboratory for testing.
Mr. Kraemer's comments are a poke in the eye to every independent researcher who is working tirelessly out in the field to reveal the truth about Gulf seafood.
Here's the seafood story in which Mr. Kraemer is quoted:

While the food system has remained relatively untouched, "we've certainly studied it since 9/11 to assess what the potential impacts might be," says Don Kraemer, deputy director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. "And they can be catastrophic," he says.
