Norovirus Outbreak in Washington Traced to Oysters from Korea
Monday, November 7th, 2011

Last Friday, the FDA reported that ASSI-branded frozen oysters from Korea had been linked to a norovirus outbreak in Washington state.

The oysters were served in a Washington state restaurant and eaten by three people who became ill and tested positive for norovirus.

Norovirus causes gastroenteritis (an inflammation of the stomach and intestines). The most common symptoms are nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.

The Seattle Times subsequently reported that the Asian food distributor that had imported the oysters had issued a voluntary recall.
