Group issues warning about feeding kids tuna

Children may be eating high levels of mercury with their tuna fish sandwiches at school and at home.

Mercury Policy Project, a consumer advocacy group, tested content of nearly 60 samples of canned tuna. The group says albacore or white tuna can triple a child's mercury explosure.

They recommend schools and parents not serve it but if they do, the group says children under 55 pounds should limit light tuna to one meal, once a month.

They say no child should eat tuna every day.
