Staying safe with shellfish


I REFER to the report “Eight sick from eating mussels in PD, two in intensive care” (The Star, April 2). It was reported that the mussels, bought from two markets in Port Dickson, were contaminated by dangerous biotoxins.

Naturally, the incident raised concerns about the risks of consuming mussels and other shellfish.
