Be Oyster Aware!

What did the oyster say when he saw the human smiling at him?
"Oh shucks!" is a site that alerts the masses of the dangerous Vibrio vulnificus bacteria that can cause serious illness or even death among some "at-risk" consumers of oysters.

Vibrio vulnificus occurs naturally in warm, unpolluted seawater. As informs us, the transmission of the bacteria to humans can occur by eating raw or undercooked oysters. If you have liver disease, diabetes or a weak immune system you are at risk of bacteria-related death or of contracting the bacteria-related illnesses.

The Be Oyster Aware website teaches consumers all about the dangers of Vibrio vulnificus, but still encourages the consumption of oysters safely, by offering a wide array of oyster recipes. Recipes include and oyster pizza, grilled oysters, oyster quiche and more to guide you in preparing your own Gulf oysters!
