NZ Visitor Warning: Another Outbreak of Norovirus

Posted by te2ataria on October 17, 2008

New Zealand Health Bulletin # 21. Another Outbreak of Norovirus

Following several cases of food poisoning, warnings have been issued about norovirus contamination of shellfish from the Kerikeri Inlet in the Bay of Islands.

North Island, NZ

A number of people from Auckland and Northland recently became ill after consuming oysters harvested in the Bay of Islands.

Norovirus is a bacteria found in human feces.  Marine contamination occurs when raw sewage is discharged into coastal waters.  The common symptoms of illness from norovirus include nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, chills and aching muscles.

Reports also say high levels of a toxic species of phytoplankton were detected at Tapeka Point in the Bay of Islands, last week.

Meanwhile, two people were killed and at least a dozen others were sickened by an outbreak of norovirus in an Auckland nursing home.

South Island

Separate outbreaks of norovirus have been reported. An outbreak on campus of Lincoln University [you would have thought they teach their kids to wash their hands after toilet by the time they reach university age] in Canterbury has affected dozens of students.

New Zealand fish liver oil supplement contained only 10 percent of the EPA claimed on its label

NZPA- A consumer watchdog in Hong Kong says more than 40 percent of the fish oils or fish liver oils tested there contained less fatty acids than claimed on the labels, and that a New Zealand product was one of the worst performers.

A New Zealand fish liver oil supplement, Kiwi House Arctic South-J, contained only 29.6 milligrams of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) per capsule instead of the 240mg claimed on its label, the Consumer Council told the Hong Kong Standard.

It said of the overall 28 samples tested, eight contained a level of Omega 3 fatty acid, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), lower than claimed and four samples had less EPA .

And a Nature’s Fruit Alaska Deep Sea Fish Oil from the United States contained 71 percent less DHA than on its label: 26mg per capsule instead of 90mg. That sample also contained the highest amount of trans fat of 40.6mg per capsule.

The tests also found 12 samples to have been contaminated with pesticide DDT though the level was within safety standards.
