What’s the problem?

November 4, 2011 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release today warning the public to avoid ASSI brand frozen oysters because they have been linked to an outbreak of illnesses caused by norovirus.

The products in question were packed in three pound bags. Each bag is labeled ASSI Brand “INDIVIDUALLY QUICK FROZEN OYSTER” with a “Better if Used By” date of “2013.02.232.” The individual bags are shipped in boxes of 10 bags each and can be identified with the lot number C-110223 appearing on each shipping carton, along with a “SHUCKED DATE: 2011.02.24. Central Fisheries Co. Ltd. was the packer and Korean Farms of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., was the distributor.

Records indicate that these products were shipped and distributed to the states of Washington, California, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Idaho and Utah.

If you have purchased oysters included in this recall, discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. If you have already eaten the oysters and not become ill, no additional action is necessary. However, if you have developed food poisoning symptoms after eating oysters, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Norovirus

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), noroviruses are a group of related non-enveloped viruses that cause acute gastroenteritis in humans. The most common signs and symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Noroviruses can spread from person to person, through contaminated food or water, and by touching contaminated surfaces. Norovirus is the leading cause of foodborne-disease in the United States.

Noroviruses are extremely contagious, and outbreaks occur frequently due to the ease of transmission. People with norovirus are contagious from the onset of symptoms till at least three days and up to two weeks after recovery, making control of the disease exceedingly difficult. Norovirus can spread rapidly in closed environments like daycare centers and nursing homes.
