Oysters from Arcachon Basin temporarily banned from sale

Oysters from Arcachon Basin temporarily banned from sale - Oysters from the Arcachon Basin have been temporarily banned from sale after "several cases of collective food poisoning”. Authorities say that the symptoms are those of acute gastroenteritis and no serious cases have been reported to date. Traceability investigations are underway, but several reports already indicate that oysters from the Arcachon Basin "are in question".

As of today, Thursday 28th December, batches of shellfish harvested or fished in these areas must be withdrawn from sale. People who have shellfish from the area are asked not to consume them and to return them to the point of sale. This measure, which will be lifted "as soon as the health quality of the shellfish becomes fully satisfactory again", primarily affects oyster farmers whose production was to grace many tables on Sunday evening for New Year's Eve.
