Eating Raw Oysters, Is it safe?

cheuimay | Apr 14, 2012 01:22 AM

I hear raw oysters are really good for us and I'd like to start eating them, but am hesitant because of all the fear propaganda out there about bacterial infections. I would like to know if anyone has gotten sick from eating raw oysters, or if anyone has had no problems eating them all their lives. Also, has anyone tried freezing them first to kill off all the bacteria, then eating them right after defrosting? I hear that's how fish is prepared for sushi.
