  • Minister of Agriculture Land and Fisheries Clarence Rambharat

"Minister of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries, Clarence Rambharat, issued the warning on Monday by way of a media release following an advisory from the US Food and Drug Agency that the seafood may be contaminated with Vibrio parahaemolyticus" - a bacterium in the same family as those that cause cholera.

Members of the public who purchase fresh crab meat from Venezuela are being advised to desist from doing so in wake of confirmed reports that the meat may contain a bacteria known as "Vibrio parahaemolyticus" - a bacterium in the same family as those that cause cholera.

"Consumers are advised to ask where their crab meat is from, if dining out at a restaurant or in grocery stores", the FDA said in a late Friday outbreak alert.

There could be a rush to export Venezuelan crab, too, as the country is expected to begin its two-month moratorium on crab harvesting on August 15. The outbreak has sickened 12 people in three states, with four of those requiring hospitalization, according to CDC. People reported becoming ill between April 1 and July 3.
