The Florida cosmetology board has banned fish pedicures.
The board said salons had been inquiring about its legality and decided to issue the decision before it became a problem.
The treatment is popular in Asia and has spread to some U.S. cities. A client sticks feet, hands or other body parts in a bowl or pool, and the small fish chow down on soft decaying skin.
Texas, Washington, Massachusetts and New Hampshire have also outlawed the practice. A spokeswoman for the Florida board says there's concern because there's no way to disinfect a pool of fish in between uses.
It sounds creepy to me. Fish, eating your feet. Eek!
