CSPI says inaction on raw oysters is dangerous to consumers

5/11/2000-The Center for Science in the Public Interest, the Consumer Federation of America, Public Citizen, and Safe Tables our Priority have urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take immediate action to protect consumers from raw oysters contaminated with deadly bacteria. CSPI called on the agency to require oyster processors to eliminate Vibrio vulnificus bacteria before selling their products. According to the organization, effective treatments include cool pasteurization or hydrostatic pressure, neither of which affects oyster quality. For more see CSPI Press Release.
