Tighter rules aim to limit seafood poisoning from raw oysters – Seattle Times


Having once been poisoned by what I assume was vibrio, I’m looking forward to seeing if this new technique works. I can tell you that you do not want to get sick from this. It was debilitating for a number of days. I was out of work almost a week. And I was lucky enough to have had someone to get my sailboat home or I would likely have gone into a hospital. Yes, it’s that bad.

To avert illnesses, a new plan uses varying temperatures to assist Washington state growers of oysters destined to be eaten raw.
