I'll tell you what, I'm glad I don't eat oysters. They seem slimy and flavorless to me but to each their own.

The FDA has issued a warning about consuming frozen half-shell oysters, frozen oyster IQF, and frozen oyster blocks that were harvested on February 6, 2022, from Designated Area No. II, Dai One Food Co., ROK. The oysters were distributed to New York State. In addition to New York, 12 other states were affected - Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The warning is issued to restaurants and retailers in New York. Also, people who are pregnant, elderly, or have weakened immune deficiencies need to avoid these oysters.

The FDA is advising consumers not to eat, and restaurants and food retailers not to sell, and to dispose of Dai One Food Co. frozen half shell oysters with a harvest date of 2/6/2022 from Designated Area No. II and sold in the states named above.
