FDA Advises Consumers & Retailers to Avoid Potentially Contaminated Raw Oysters from Canada

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is working with federal, state, and local officials on a Norovirus outbreak linked to oysters from British Columbia in Canada. The FDA had confirmed that contaminated raw oysters harvested in British Colombia, were distributed to CA, IL, MA, NY, and WA. It is possible that additional states received these oysters either directly from Canada or through further distribution within the U.S. Since mid-March the Public Health Agency of Canada has been investigating this outbreak. In Canada, there were 132 cases in British Columbia, 15 cases in Alberta, and 25 cases in Ontario. Four shellfish farms in British Colombia were closed. FDA and the states are conducting a trace-forward investigation to determine where the raw oysters were distributed and ensure they’re removed from the food supply. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/recallsoutbreaksemergencies/outbreaks/ucm606139.htm" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/food/recallsoutbreaksemergencies/outbreaks/ucm606139.htm
