The FDA issued an alert to businesses that purchased oysters raised between December 18 and 27 and to those who consumed them.

The United States warned restaurants, suppliers, and consumers in California not to consume and dispose of certain oysters from the Sociedad Acuicola GolPac company raised in Sonora (Mexico) due to potential norovirus contamination.

The alert from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is directed both at businesses that have purchased this mollusk raised between December 18 and 27 and at those who have consumed it.

Sociedad Acuicola GolPac’s oysters were distributed to restaurants in California but may have gone to other states as well, according to their statement.

The FDA warned that they may be contaminated with norovirus, a virus that can cause diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, fever, headache, and general discomfort normally between 12 and 48 hours after being exposed to it.

The California Department of Public Health reported on January 10 that there had been an outbreak of norovirus linked to the consumption of oysters from Bahía Salina, in Sonora.

An investigation has been opened into what happened and to determine the number of people affected and the Mexican authorities have also opened investigations and closed the Bahía Salina breeding area this Friday.
