Florida tar balls not from this oil spill, Coast Guard finds

Lab results released Wednesday revealed that 50 or so three- to eight-inch tar balls found in the Florida Keys this week did not come from the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The Coast Guard lab's findings were conclusive, a statement said. But the spreading gulf oil spill has entered the loop current and should reach the Straits of Florida in a week.
