The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals closed a Terrebonne Parish molluscan shellfish harvesting area Tueaday.
It is the area located in Basin 12, Area 23.
DHH also ordered a recall of all oysters harvested from that area since April 26, 2012 including shucked, frozen, breaded, post- harvest processed and oysters for the half shell market.
Fourteen people became ill with stomach viruses after eating the Louisiana oysters at a New Orleans area restaurant on April 28 or 29.
The illnesses were not life-threatening, and no one was hospitalized. Doctors traced the outbreak to Louisiana oysters consumed at the same restaurant. The oysters were harvested from Area 23.
