Prevention of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
Prevention of Vibrio parahaemolyticus:
Most infections caused by V. parahaemolyticus
in the United States can be prevented by thoroughly cooking
seafood, especially oysters. Wound infections can be prevented
by avoiding exposure of open wounds to warm seawater. When an
outbreak is traced to an oyster bed, health officials recommend
closing the oyster bed until conditions are less favorable for
V. parahaemolyticus. (Source: excerpt from Vibrio parahaemolyticus (General): DBMD)
