The state Department of Agriculture is alerting the public to a voluntary shellfish recall.

The department says it is voluntarily recalling oysters and clams harvested from waters in Norwalk and Westport.

That’s due to the naturally occurring bacterium vibrio parahaemolyticus.  It causes diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, headace, fever, and chills.

Oysters, mussels, hard clams, littleneck clams, chowder clams, quahogs, and soft-shell steamers harvested between July 3 and August 2 are part of the recall.

Twenty-two harvest locations in Norwalk and Westport are covered in the recall.
