There oysters were distributed to New Jersey, as well as Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

What's the illness these bad oysters are causing? Sapovirus illness. The FDA says "sapoviruses cause a sporadic gastroenteritis, similar to norovirus, in populations ranging from children to the elderly."

Symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and nausea, and they usually show up around 2 days after consuming the bad food. Once you have it, the sickness can last for 1-4 very unpleasant days.
