FDA Warns Against Mississippi Oysters

Further, consumers are advised not to eat such oysters as the FDA investigates an outbreak of norovirus illnesses associated with the oysters. Norovirus is a foodborne pathogen that can cause acute gastroenteritis in humans.

Eleven people so far have reported becoming sick after eating raw oysters at a restaurant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Test results by local and state health departments confirmed that the patients were infected with norovirus.
