Hey! Have you been hearing troubling things about crab in the news? So have we! Please read the following important note about this event:
We too have been following the red algae bloom very closely for some time now and take the situation and the risks posed by domoic acid very seriously. As food safety is our number one priority we made sure to speak with our seafood purveyor before announcing this event to guarantee that our crab would be safe to eat. They were well aware of the situation and are just as concerned by any chance of foodborne illness as all of you are. We would like to share with you what they told us which is that this year our crab supply will be sourced from Alaskan and Canadian waters, which are not affected by the red algae bloom currently affecting the coasts of California and Oregon, and is therefore 100% safe to eat. Rest assured that this event will still be happening and all of the crab that we will serve at SoMa StrEat Food Park has been carefully chosen to be healthy, safe, and delicious. If you have any further questions or concerns related to this matter please email email@example.com and we will be more than happy to answer them. Thank you!
