Abstract

Three separate epidemiological studies have shown an epidemiological association between shellfish consumption and increased risk of hepatitis A infection in consumers. An epidemiological association between non-A and non-B hepatitis has been demonstrated. A review of the risks of infection, clinical illness, and mortality associated with enteroviruses suggest that the presence of these viruses in shellfish presents a significant risk to the consumer.
