retail news in context, analysis with attitude

MNB took note yesterday of a USA Today report on planned new US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations that will require that oysters harvested during warm weather months be “post-harvest processed” to kill the deadly bacteria vibrio vulnificus, which is more evident in osyeres harvested between May and October. As a result, oysters will become harder...though not impossible...to find during the summer.

However, we should have pointed out that these new regulations would apply only to Gulf Coast oysters - not the ones from the East Coast or Pacific Northwest.

Which means that maybe we can all still have oysters and beer for dinner every day of the year, and feel fine...
