Are raw oysters safe to eat in May?

It may sound silly, but I was just told by a Texan that as a rule, folks only ate oysters in the "R" months when they were in season and that the old school safety mentality would dictate that raw oysters could be dangerous this time of year.

When oysters are out of season in Nola, where do they come from? Do people actually avoid eating them raw in the summer? Probably good to know before I gorge on a pile on my first night in Nola!
