Health officials warn of vibrio in Chesapeake Bay

Image
Maryland health officials say people may be getting sick from eating raw oysters and other shellfish from the Chesapeake Bay.

The culprit is vibrio, a naturally occurring bacteria that's more prevalent in the bay during hot weather.

The state health department says there have been 24 cases of vibrio infection this year.
