Callistin shellfish poisoning

Callistin shellfish poisoning: Introduction

Callistin shellfish poisoning: The Callistin shellfish (Japanese Callista) is found primarily in Japan. Eating the whole shellfish can cause poisoning symptoms in humans. It is believed that the ovaries contain high levels of choline during spawning season which makes them toxic to humans. The symptoms that manifest are similar to a severe allergic reaction. Avoiding eating the ovaries is the best way to prevent poisoning - cooking does not destroy the toxin. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Callistin shellfish poisoning is available below.
