Shellfish Toxin: Loch Erisort Back to Safe Levels
Monitoring work undertaken on behalf of Food Standards Scotland has identified that the high levels of shellfish toxins identified in Loch Erisort in Lewis earlier this month have returned to safe levels.
The warning against eating shellfish from this area has now been lifted.
Levels are still raised in Loch Leurbost, Broadbay, and the Traigh Mhor in Barra. Members of the Public are still advised to avoid eating shellfish from these areas.
