Follow this link to view the report on the Safety of Consuming Fish and Shellfish from Areas Impacted by the M/V Cosco Busan Oil Spill in SanFrancisco, California
Advice if you find oil or tar balls on the shores:
- Avoid contact. Direct contact with the oil or tar balls can cause skin irritation.
- If you do get oil or tar balls on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. Wash your hands before eating to avoid ingestion of oil.
- If you get oil on clothing, wash it in the usual way. Harsh detergents, solvents or other chemicals can increase skin irritation and should not be necessary to remove oil from skin or clothing.
- Don't burn debris, driftwood or other materials contaminated with oil.
