The oysters were harvested in October 10, 2023 from the harvest area PE9B and then sold to those restaurants and retailers. Contaminated oysters can cause serious illness if they are eaten raw. Food that is contaminated with pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli will look, smell, and taste normal, and their texture is not compromised.

On October 10, 2023, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) tested the oysters and discovered the presence of Salmonella and an unacceptable level of genetic E. coli, which can indicate fecal contamination. On October 18, 2023, the CFIA told the FDA about the test results. Canada is investigating the cause of this problem. Future Seafoods, Inc. has not yet issued a recall.

Symptoms of a Salmonella food poisoning infection usually begin 12 to 72 Horus after eating food contaminated with this pathogen. The illness lasts four to seven days.

Symptoms of a pathogenic E. coli infection usually begin a few days after eating contaminated food.
