In Canada Stellar Bay Shellfish Oysters were recalled due to norovirus

The CFIA recalled oysters from the marketplace due to possible norovirus contamination. The recall was triggered by findings of the CFIA during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. There have been reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products. The recalled products have been sold in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario and may have been distributed in other provinces and territories. The impacted oysters were harvested in Deep Bay, which is off the east coast of Vancouver Island. The Vancouver Coastal Health said it had seen an increase in norovirus cases associated with eating raw B.C. oysters. More than 50 people reported having "acute gastrointestinal illness" after ingesting raw oysters, VCH said in a news release Friday. Several oyster-harvesting areas were temporarily shut down following an investigation by government authorities and the shellfish industry. They will reopen "when contamination is cleared," officials said. VCH warned the public against eating raw oysters. @
