Cabot Oysters Recalled in Canada for Possible Salmonella

Nova Scotia Limited is recalling their brand Cabot oysters in Canada for possible Salmonella contamination. This product is often eaten raw, which poses a food poisoning hazard. There have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall.

The oysters were sold in Nova Scotia, Quebec, and may have been sold nationally. The recalled product includes Cabot Oysters (Crassostrea Virginica) in 75 count packages. The Harvest Date is 16-09-2018, the Packed on Date is 17-09-2018, and the Harvest Location is 1387. The other recalled products is Cabot Oysters (Crassostrea Virginica) in 100 count packages. The Harvest Date on that product is 16-09-2018, the Packed on Date is 17-09-2018, and the Harvest Location is 1387.  Neither product has a UPC number.

The recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results. The government is conducting a food safety investigation which may cause the recall of other products. The CFIA is making sure that industry is removing the recalled product from the marketplace.

If you bought these oysters, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook them. Some bacteria can produce toxins that are heat resistant and can still make you sick. Throw them away after wrapping the package in something else so other people and animals can’t get at it. You can also return the oysters to the place of purchase for a refund.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and pains, and diarrhea. Symptoms usually begin 6 to 72 hours after eating food contaminated with the bacteria. If you have eaten these oysters and have been ill, see your doctor.
