DETROIT (AP) – The Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat raw or partially cooked shellfish harvested from New York’s Oyster Bay Harbor; they have been linked to cases of foodborne illness in several states, including Michigan.
FDA says oysters and claims from the Long Island harbor may be contaminated with bacteria that can lead to nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and other symptoms.
Consumers should check the tags on shellfish to identify where they were harvested. New York regulators have closed the harbor to shellfish harvesters until further notice.
