Had Prawns This Easter? You Need To Read This Warning

Prawns at Easter and Christmas is a tradition for many Aussie families.

Unfortunately, those Brisbane residents who enjoyed the seafood over the Easter long weekend are now being warned their food could have been contaminated.

Commercial fisherman say at least 300kg of prawns were very likely contaminated by a toxic spill with local fishers not warned of the danger.

Suppliers have now been advised not to sell prawns caught from the contaminated zone in the Brisbane River.

The advice comes a week after the spill, with the Queensland Seafood Industry Association saying they only received advice from Fisheries Queensland on Tuesday, the Courier Mail reports.

The contamination is the result of firefighting foam spilt from a Qantas hangar at the Brisbane Airport.

The level of toxins, including perfluorooctanoic acid, is yet to be determined.
