By Kristen Mosbrucker, The Advocate

Nearly a month into the Louisiana Department of Health's enforcement of a new shrimp and crawfish labeling law for food establishments, more than 150 companies across the state were cited for not disclosing imported seafood to customers. About 75 violations were at restaurants across southeastern Louisiana from Baton Rouge to New Orleans and towns in between, which had imported shrimp and crawfish on site but did not have it labeled on menus, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.
