Oyster safety
« on: February 27, 2021, 08:57:25 pm »
Hi All,

So I am new to raw paleo altho I have attempted in the past but couldn’t keep it up. I have been doing 100% raw for the past week and have decided I stick to it as I feel best this way.

Anyway on to the topic, I impulse bought 6 wild oysters at a food market today whete I usually get my chilled unfrozen tuna despite never having them before. I’ve been too scared to eat raw shellfish although I’ve had sashimi and raw meat many times since I was little. I’m mainly concerned about the Vibrio Vulnificus bacteria that exists in shellfish and apparently eats your flesh. Read about people dying of it. So yea, kinda scared, especially since I still have stomach problems altho thwyre getting much better. I attached a photo of the oysters, they are locally sourced (UK) still alive and fresh and also wild.

Please let me how to be safe eating oysters. Maybe adding ACV or lemon, ginger? Should I wash them? Any throughts are welcome !

In my country we have red tide alerts.

https://www.bfar.da.gov.ph/redtide

I squeeze drops of lemon or dunk it in some apple cider vinegar or any vinegar for that feel of cleanliness.

Your taste buds are your friend.  If it stinks or tastes bad or tastes dirty individually, spit it out.

I eat oysters individually so I can taste them if they are good or not.

In our markets when they sell oysters in their shell, it is understood they are ALIVE, do not buy them in the shell dead.

Do not "clean" live oyster outer shells by scrubbing out the mud, they get nutrition there that keeps them alive.

Eat immediately while they are alive, don't let them die on you.

FYI I eat oysters on a regular basis, once or twice a week.  They are relatively cheap where I live.

Thanks for the info goodsamaritan

According to the seller, they’re alive
He also said “they’re perfect to eat raw”..
How can I tell they’re alive myself?
How long do they stay alive in the fridge?

They smell like the sea, not fishy at all. but that’s only the shell, maybe the inside would be different?

I don't know if we have red tides here, tried to search it but nothing ..
