Officials say norovirus infection had been reported among patrons at a Tennessee restaurant that served oysters harvested in Mississippi coastal waters.
The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Tennessee officials reported the link between the restaurant illnesses and oysters harvested Feb. 24 in the Conditionally Approved Area 2-C Shellfish Growing Waters in the Pass Christian area.
Those oysters were recalled and no problems were reported with oysters harvested in other Mississippi waters.
The department did not identify where in Tennessee the problem occurred or provide information about those who became ill.
Norovirus symptoms include nausea, vomiting, head and stomach ache and fatigue.
