SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Several Northwest Louisiana restaurants have been cited by the Louisiana Department of Health for violations of the state’s new seafood labeling law.
The law requires restaurants and distributors that offer cooked or prepared crawfish or shrimp to notify their customers if these seafood items came from outside the United States. It was signed into law in June. The Louisiana Department of Health began to enforce it on September 1.
The state health department has since conducted 3,200 inspections and issued 108 citations around the state for improper labeling, according to Public Information Officer Sean Ellis.
According to a list provided Thursday by the LDH, six restaurants in Bossier City, three in Shreveport, and one in Minden are among those cited following inspections that took place between Sept. 10-20.
