WAUWATOSA (AP) - State regulators say the trendy fish pedicures making their wayinto some U.S. cities are illegal in Wisconsin.
An inspector from the Department of Regulation and Licensing hasvisited the Doctor Fish Magnifique salon at Mayfair Mall inWauwatosa.
For $35, customers can stick their feet in a small pool of waterwhere 100 tiny garra rufa fish, known as doctor fish, will eat thedead skin. The treatment is popular in Asia and has recently movedinto the U.S.
Regulators are concerned because there's no way to disinfect apool of fish in between uses.
The salon says the procedure isn't technically a pedicure and isnot subject to the licensing requirements.
Regulation and Licensing spokesman David Carlson says the statecould order Doctor Fish to shut down.
