Gotta Have My Oysters!
I love eating Gulf oysters and I got to have them but everyone needs to be informed, be cautious, be smart, and be sure when eating Oysters. Without question, there is an overwhelming need to inform at-risk oyster consumers about the potential hazard associated with eating raw oysters(3). As such, this website is dedicated to educating the oyster consuming public. It provides a thorough background on Vibrio vulnificus and the health conditions that place an individual in the at-risk category, as well as present tasty oyster products with reduced risk for all consumers to enjoy, including at-risk consumers. So, eat your savory oyster treats raw, steamed, fried, charbroiled, grilled….whatever your appetite desires, just BE OYSTER AWARE!
