"Oregon Issues Clam Eating Limit Due To High Arsenic Levels"

"Oregon health officials on Monday issued a consumption advisory for softshell clams dug along the state's entire coast because they contain high levels of arsenic.

The Statesman Journal reported on the problem last week, after the Oregon Health Authority notified coastal health and government officials, but told them to keep mum.

Several refused, saying the public deserved to know right away."
