South Australia’s oyster industry has been dealt a blow in the lead-up to Christmas, with Australians being urged to avoid eating the uncooked seafood.
More than 50 cases of gastro-related illnesses have been recorded in the past two months alone.
It has prompted warnings from both SA and Western Australia’s health departments.
Of the 17 people who fell ill in WA in the past six weeks, all bar one had eaten raw oysters.
