  • Woman dies from flesh-eating bacteria after eating oysters

"About 36 hours later she started having extreme respiratory distress, had a rash on her legs and everything", Bergquist told KLFY, a local CBS affiliate.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, people become infected with Vibrio after eating raw or undercooked shellfish or by exposing open wounds to brackish water. Most people don't last, ' Karen told KLFY.

People are most at risk when they eat raw or under-cooked seafood or have exposed a wound to seawater.

When treatment is possible, understanding that flesh-eating disease has been caused by Vibrio is important, since it's treated differently from other bacteria.

While media reports are calling this a flesh-eating bacteria, it's important to note that this is not one of the bacterial groups listed by the CDC as causing necrotizing fasciitis, the skin infection that destroys the body's soft tissue.

LeBlanc died 21 days later, on October 15, according to the report. Only about 205 infections are caused by this strain in the US each year, and only 25 percent of them result in death, according to the CDC. Most people recover after a few days.

"She had severe wounds on her legs from that bacteria", Bergquist said. But it's very rare: CDC estimates are that there are about 205 cases in the United States every year. Not necessarily, experts say.

"Our Gulf Coast waters definitely can sustain the growth of this organism", said Dr. Fred Lopez with the Department of Internal Medicine at the LSU School of Medicine.

Vicki said: "If they really knew what could happen to them and they could literally die within 48, 36 hours of eating raw oysters, is it really worth it?".

Raw oysters can be contaminated with vibrio bacteria.

Anyone can get sick from vibriosis, but it's rare. It also causes about 80,000 illnesses, 52,000 of which are from eating contaminated seafood such as raw oysters.

People with weak immune system are more likely to contract the vibrio bacteria. "If you've got those symptoms, you need to get to the emergency room right away and get treated".

What is Vibrio Vulnificus and Should You Be Concerned?

U.S. Food Safety advises against eating of raw oysters and provided tips on preparing and cooking them. They said they would have wanted somebody else to inform them about the risks. "You need to have high, sustained temperatures to kill the organism".
