Man Dies Of Bacteria Illness After Eating Raw Oysters

posted by BC - 

A 71-year-old man in Florida died on July 10 after being infected by bacteria that can cause serious gastrointestinal illness and rarely flesh-eating disease (necrotizing fasciitis) from eating a contaminated raw oyster, according to local news reports. The man ate the bad oyster at a Sarasota restaurant two days before succumbing to gastrointestinal illness.

These bacteria thrive in warm, salty water, which is why infections tend to happen more in the summer.
