  1. Are there more recent cases of food poisoning with oysters?

  2. Laura Bush says

    wow, I would never have known about this had I not asked my local Publix store to source it for me. They went to Whole Foods which is where I usually go to buy them, I stock up because it is far away from me! Whole Foods has taken it off their shelves. BUT I’ve eaten every can in my pantry except one and knock on wood, no norovirus…
    I won’t be eating the last one!!!!

    • Linda Larsen says

      I’m glad you haven’t gotten sick! The odds are you’ll be fine. The FDA found norovirus in the Korean harvesting area, so it may not be in the oysters.

      • I have had several cans of the smoked oysters in my pantry for months. I just opened one and ate 2 oysters and then read this post. I hope I am going to be okay. I am throwing out the other cans.At least if I get sick, I will know what to tell them in the emergency room. Wish me luck on this.
