A La Carte Produkter AS in Oslo is recalling oysters (Crassonstrea Gigas) from Ireland, via France, of the brands “BB Boudeuse No 5” and “Royale No 3”. The reason is suspicion of norovirus, following several cases of illness.
The products are sold to restaurants, grocery stores and delicatessens all over Norway.
A La Carte Products asks consumers who have purchased the product to throw it away or return it to where the product was purchased.
Oysters are often eaten raw without heat treatment, and they can contain viruses, most often norovirus. Norovirus is the most common cause of viral diarrheal disease in Norway. Boiling and frying will kill norovirus, but it is uncertain whether steaming has sufficient effect.
