Frozen oyster recall
Thu, 19 Jul 2012 9:38a.m.
A Christchurch-based seafood company is recalling frozen oyster products over fears they could be contaminated with a highly contagious gastro bug.
United World Foods has initiated a recall of all five Sea Cuisine-branded bags of frozen oyster products because they may be infected with norovirus.
The virus can cause gastroenteritis resulting in diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps which can last for up to a week.
The company issued the notice warning that all Sea Cuisine frozen oyster products should not be consumed.
The affected products are 1kg bags of frozen oyster meat, battered, crumbed and floured oysters and 500g bags of Japanese crumbed oysters.
The recall notice says the products were sold in smaller retail and wholesale food outlets throughout the country.
It says anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
The recall comes on the same day that a Napier-based company, Bay Cuisine, recalled some pre-packaged cold meat products over concerns they contained the potentially fatal listeria bacteria.
Two deaths in the past six weeks in Hawke's Bay have been linked to listeria.
