More than a year after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the goverment has only recently scaled down the massive testing of Gulf seafood. Dr. Calvin Walker, Lead Analyst for the National Seafood Inspection Lab, has overseen the testing of thousands of samples of Seafood. He says he has no problem eating it.
