Korean oysters checked on reports of food poisoning

TAIPEI--Health authorities in Taiwan said yesterday they have seized a batch of raw oysters at a high-end restaurant chain and have launched checks on all oyster imports from South Korea after dozens of consumers in Taipei and Taichung reported symptoms of food poisoning.

Since late May, there have been reports of 24 people experiencing nausea, vomiting, abdominal pains and diarrhea after eating at Taipei restaurants in the Eatogther chain.

Earlier this week, dozens of similar cases were reported in Taichung by people who bought food at Eatogther restaurants in the central Taiwan city.

Initial investigations showed that the problem was caused by eating uncooked oysters shipped from South Korea. Checks at the three Eatogther restaurants in Taipei and those in Taichung found sanitation problems in the kitchens, including a pileup of waste, inadequate refrigeration, and oysters being left to thaw out in plastic containers near sinks.
