Raw Oysters Sold by DiCarlo Seafood Linked to Outbreak Recalled

Raw oysters that are linked to a multistate, multi pathogen food poisoning outbreak have been recalled, according to the California Department of Public Health. The recalling firm is DiCarlo Seafood of Wilmington, California.

DiCarlo Seafood Raw Oysters Linked to Food Poisoning Outbreak Recalled

At least 16 people who live in 5 states are sick in this outbreak. The pathogens involved are Shigella, Vibrio, E. coli, Campylobacter, and norovirus. Some of the patients are sick with more than one pathogen. Two people have been hospitalized because their illness is so severe. The patients live in Alaska, California, Illinois, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

The DiCarlo Seafood imported raw oysters were harvested from Estero El Cardon in Baja California Sur, Mexico. They were sold at restaurants in California. We know they were sold at Fish Market Restaurant at 750 North Harbor Drive in San Diego; at Fresh Endeavors at 534 Stanford Avenue in Los Angeles, and at Tony’s Fish Market at 112 Fisherman’s Wharf in Redondo Beach, California, according to the retail distribution list issued by the state of California. That Mexican estuary has been closed to oyster harvest while an investigation is conducted.

Restaurants should stop serving these oysters, and consumers should not buy or eat them. If you have purchased raw oysters recently, do not eat them until you know for sure that they are not part of this recall. Ask your retailer the origin of the oysters. If they don’t know, don’t eat them.

If you purchased these raw oysters at the retailers listed, throw them away in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund. Clean your fridge after you dispose of the oysters. And wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling them and after cleaning.

If you have eaten raw oysters imported from Mexico and have been sick with symptoms of vomiting, nausea, stomach cramps, and diarrhea, see your doctor.
