Canada/Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”), an Ottawa, Ontario regulatory and food safety authority, recalls certain batch/lots of Pacific Oysters due to suspected risk of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (“PSP”) contamination and consequential risk of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, tingling or burning lips, gums, tongue, face, neck, arms, legs, and toes.

Other symptoms of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning can include shortness of breath, dry mouth, a choking feeling, confused or slurred speech, and loss of coordination, all serious health hazards. In addition, PSP can be fatal in extreme cases, particularly in immunocompromised individuals. Children seem to be more susceptible to Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning, perhaps because their immune systems are not fully developed.

Connecticut Shellfish Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Hartford: ConnecticutDepartimentAgricultureLogoThe Connecticut Department of Agriculture (“CDA”) recalls various Shellfish due to Vibrio Parahaemolyticus contamination hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/nLnSD

Direct link: http://www.ct.gov/doag/cwp/view.asp?Q=529440&A=1401

Additional information:
The Connecticut Department of Agriculture has initiated a Shellfish harvesting closure and recall of Oysters and Clams already harvested from various waters of Norwalk and Westport, Connecticut (see the complete list of suspect locations at the links above).

According to the Connecticut Department of Agriculture the following Shellfish are subject to this recall:

  • Oysters, Mussels, Hard Clams, Littleneck Clams, Chowder Clams, Quahogs and Soft-Shell/Steamer Clams from the affected areas, harvested both commercially and recreationally.

The Connecticut Department of Agriculture reports raw or undercooked Shellfish have been implicated as the source of a number of illnesses related to the naturally occurring Bacterium Vibrio Parahaemolyticus.

About Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning:
Illness caused by V. Parahaemolyticus infection include diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache, fever and chills. Symptoms usually appear from 12 to 24 hours after eating contaminated Shellfish and normally last from two to seven days. Vibrio Parahaemolyticus infections can be life-threatening for immune-compromised people or those with chronic liver disease. Also at greater risk are people who regularly take antacids, heart or Diabetes medication, and those who have had antibiotic or Cancer treatments recently.

If you suspect your Shellfish is contaminated, do not eat it or serve it to others. If you experience the symptoms outlined above and suspect Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.
