Crappy South Korean Food
Crappy South Korean food– literally.
The FDA is warning people to stay away from South Korean shellfish, specifically oysters, clams, mussels and scallops, saying the products may have been exposed to human waste and contaminated with the norovirus. (They really could have just stopped at the human waste bit.)
At least four people in the United States were sickened after eating South Korean seafood – three in October and one in December. The warning covers all types of shellfish from South Korea– including fresh, canned and processed.
South Korean shellfish represents only a tiny fraction of the shellfish sold in the United States. U.S. officials are now working with South Korean producers to determine the source of the outbreak.
