Bad Fried Oysters?

steinpilz | Jan 17, 2013 11:59 AM

I had a Po'boy at a local restaurant (microbrewery) and some of the fried oysters had ugly black stomach contents rather than the usual green.

This was very off-putting and I wonder if it meant that the oysters were bad, or old, or some other problem that I should know about.

Does anyone know what causes this, and also how often it occurs - as I don't look forward to having more fried oysters with this problem (haven't ever seen it in raw oysters thankfully)!!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
