Shellfish recall in Connecticut due to food poisoning cases

The Connecticut Department of Agriculture has initiated a shellfish closure and voluntary recall of various types of shellfish including oysters, mussels, hard clams, little neck clams, chowder clams, quahogs and soft-shell/steamer clams, harvested from the waters of Norwalk and Westport, due to several cases of food poisoning (shellfish are contaminated with the bacteria Vibrio parahaemolyticus.) Consumers are advised to discard shellfish harvested from the affected areas.
