Florida man dies from infection after eating bad oyster

The man ate oysters contaminated with Vibrio Vulnificus on July 8 and died two days later, the Florida Department of Public Health said.

"We have an individual that consumed some raw oysters and to the best of our knowledge had no exposure to salt water, became severely ill, and passed away", Michael Drennon, Disease Intervention Services Program Manager at the Sarasota County Health Dept, said in a statement. He died on July 10.
