AUGUSTA, Maine – From the page:”The Maine Center for Disease Control said Friday that lobster meat is perfectly safe but that people should not eat the tomalley — a soft green substance found in the body of the lobster.
High levels of toxic algae known as red tide have been recorded along Maine’s coast this summer, forcing the state to close many areas to clam and mussel harvesting. Tomalley functions as the lobster’s liver by serving as a natural filter for contaminants that are in the water. …” [the same reason you should not eat the livers of any animals not raised totally “organically”]
