Sewage spills blamed as E coli forces Cornish shellfish sites to close

Posted by

Watershed worked with the Guardian and ITV News to expose high levels of E coli in oysters around the country. “Very high” levels of E coli found in oysters and mussels have led to the closure of 11 shellfish production zones in Cornwall. In an email seen by Watershed Investigations, the Cornwall Port Health Authority told food business operators they “must not collect the affected animals from this area”.
