If you ate these oysters and have been ill with the symptoms of norovirus, see your doctor. If you have any of these oysters in your refrigerator at home, do not eat them.

Norovirus is a very contagious pathogen that is spread through contaminated food and drink, through person-to-person contact, and through touching contaminated surfaces. Symptoms of norovirus include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach cramps, fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, and fatigue. These symptoms can start as soon as 12 hours after a person is exposed to the virus. Most people do get better within a day or two, although some patients may become dehydrated and need hospitalization.
