Raw oysters harvested in Florida have been linked to a three-state outbreak. Health departments in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama are working together on the investigation which now includes eight illnesses.
Did You Get Salmonella from Raw Oysters?
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services issued an emergency closure order for harvest area FL-3012 in Cedar Key for wild harvest oysters and issued a recall for oysters from that area from December 16, 2022, to February 24, 2023.
Some of these oysters have been distributed to restaurants and food retailers. These oysters should not be served to customers as Salmonella can cause serious illness and death.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, abdominal cramps, nausea, and diarrhea that can be bloody. Usually, these symptoms develop within 12 to 72 hours of exposure. Anyone who ate the recalled oysters and developed these symptoms should see a doctor and mention exposure to Salmonella.
