16.Consumption of Oyster
Live oyster must be kept in chiller between 0 and 4 deg C. Shucked oysters are best consumed within 4 hours while non shucked oysters are best consumed within the same day of delivery. Always rinse and clean shucked oyster flesh under cold running potable water for a few seconds, prior to consumption. Serve it on a bed of ice to keep it at low temperature.
Please do not panic if you spot a worm in an oyster! Our oysters are stored in water tanks with a special filtration system that ensures their optimal freshness. However, in a rare case, you might spot a worm in your oyster. Mud worms are part of oyster growing areas ecosystem and may burrow their way into a live oyster shell. They are a natural occurrence and unsightly, but are harmless and do not affect the quality of oysters.
It is perfectly safe to consume the oyster after you’ve cleaned it off with potable water or clean napkin. However, if you’re extremely squeamish and find these natural organisms revolting, we would advise you to refrain from purchase & consumption of live oyster.
17.Consumption of Raw Seafood
As with most animal-based foods, there are health risks involved in consuming raw shellfish, fish and any other seafood. Vulnerable groups of people (especially pregnant women, children, elderly and persons with chronic illness, compromised immune system, sensitive bowels or liver diseases) should avoid the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood.
All customers are presumed fit to consume raw or undercooked shellfish (oysters, mussels, abalone, clams etc), fish and other seafood. Healthy individuals should also observe good personal hygiene in storing and preparing the raw seafood and consume them within recommended time frame and in moderation. The Ocean Mart will not be responsible for any associated illness arising from consumption of our raw seafood. Customers are deemed to have accepted our Terms & Condition and indemnity waiver upon purchase.
Anyone showing signs of food borne illness should seek medical attention immediately.
