FDA OYSTER WARNING (Norovirus) Sat, 03/21/09 3:12 PM (permalink)
The FDA warns people not to eat oysters (especially raw oysters) recently caught in the Mississippi Sound portion of the Gulf of Mexico near Pass Christian.  Eleven individuals reported becoming sick after eating raw oysters at a restaurant in Chattanooga, TN.  Test results that the patients were infected with norovirus

    Thanks for the heads up as I will be heading to NOLA in a couple of weeks intending on eating a bunch of raw oysters.

        That scares me which is why I've yet to give them a try.

            Somehow I have a hard time believing in anything the FDA says..I say, bring on the oysters..but I always ask where they are from.
