So, I'm coming to SF next week and was planning to go to Hog Island at the Ferry building. I went last October by myself and had the most transforming meal of raw oysters (my first ever - a good place to start!) and the grilled cheese sandwich. (Much to my surprise, 6 months later the NYTimes recommended this exact lunch in an article about the Ferry building!)
Anyway, my mom, being the worrysome typical Jewish mother type, has told me I am not to eat any oysters from the West Coast. Is this really true? Have SF oyster bars been affected, and how so? I was really looking forward to my kumamotos!
