State health officials are warning Minnesotans not to eat raw oysters harvested from Bay 14-8 in British Columbia, Canada which have been linked to norovirus cases. Twenty-nine Minnesotans became ill after eating “Stellar Bay Gold” oysters at Travail Kitchen in Robbinsdale on March 20th. Officials say the restaurant quickly brought the cases to their attention and immediately stopped serving oysters. The state Health Department says there’s currently a high level of norovirus cases in Minnesota — most not associated with eating oysters. People with norovirus can spread it to others even after symptoms end, and the best prevention is thoroughly washing hands.
