Question by Rhoda: What is the “shelf life” for raw oysters?
I live in Oklahoma. A buddy of mine went out on a shrimp boat in Louisiana on Saturday 6-20-09 and got a lot of raw oysters … iced them down on the boat and them kept them iced while he drove back to Oklahoma. I picked them up from him on Sunday 6-21-09 and have them refrigerated. My question is — I intend on eating them raw. How long will they stay “good” in my refrigerator? I don’t want to get shellfish poisoning!! I have eaten raw oysters in restaurants all my life and love them — but I don’t know their “shelf-life” insofar as my refrigerator is concerned. Anybody know???

Rather interesting behavior by a ‘reporter’ who uses BP employees and federal contractors as sources. (at 0:52 in)

We may now have reached a period of national and global fatigue over the havoc wreaked by the spill. But as someone from Louisiana, I can attest that the disaster is very much pulsating through the daily lives of millions of people in the area. Though Louisiana is not the only place affected, it was certainly one of the most hardest hit by the disaster. Even after the hole is plugged, the damage done will last for decades, generations. A complete way of life, culture is under attack and it’s vital that we, as a nation, do not lose our sense of commitment to one of the most vital cultural traditions in the United States.
