Maine lobster tomalley is the green substance found in the body of the lobster, and according to the FDA, may pose a health risk to consumers.

The warning has no impact at all on regular lobster meat, as no other meat on the lobster is affected.

The warning on Maine lobster tomalley comes after a red tide took place from New England to Canada this year.

The red tide managed to contaminate fishing locations, increasing toxin levels.

Those who consume toxic Maine lobster tomalley may show symptoms including headache, nausea, and muscle weakness.
