The Minnesota Department of Health has announced an outbreak of norovirus illnesses that has sickened at least 29 people in Minnesota after they consumed raw oysters at Travail Kitchen in Robbinsdale, Minnesota on March 20, 2022. The oysters were all harvested from a specific bay in British Columbia, Canada known as “Deep Bay 14-8 CLF #140706.” Although harvested from that bay has been halted, some of the potentially tainted oysters still may be available in the marketplace.
The outbreak in Minnesota is related to a broader outbreak that has sickened nearly 300 people in Canada and elsewhere. Symptoms of norovirus typically include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach cramps that begin 12 to 48 hours after ingestion of the virus.
