Restaurants like Pinchers say safe seafood is always a top priority. The disaster in the Gulf has every catch under the microscope. But their latest battle isn't with oil.
Managers say the biggest issue is misinformation, and people being scared that there's more of a problem than there is with the food.
A lot of people are worried about the quality of seafood they're getting. But restaurants say before it even gets off the boat, it's gone through several inspections.
John Vorndren buys seafood for every pinchers location. He says all shrimp, fish, and oysters are inspected by the fishman first. Then they go through supply companies. Then the restaurant checks one last time before you even order.
But even those safety measures aren't changing everyone's minds. People continue to shy away from fresh seafood even after managers say there's no way a tainted product could make it to Southwest Florida.
