They were sold in five dozen packages in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.

Consumers who purchased the oysters should either return them or throw them out.

No reports of illness have been linked to the product, however, in severe situations Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning can cause difficulty walking, muscle paralysis, respiratory paralysis and even death.
