The Florida Department of Health said that the 71-year-old man in Sarasota died following his seafood meal July 8 at a local restaurant.

Florida health officials say a man in Sarasota has died from a bacterial infection after eating a bad oyster.

The name of the restaurant where the man ate the oyster was not released.

While Vibrio vulnificus is sometimes known as 'flesh-eating bacteria, ' the label is misleading because humans with healthy skin are not at risk.

A 71-year-old man died of infection of the vibrio vulnificus bacteria after eating oysters at a restaurant in Florida. The county did not have any vibrio cases past year but there were confirmed cases and one death in 2016.

Vibrio vulnificus is a rare disease but infections will lead to vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, according to the departments website.

WWSB also warns that bacteria can enter the system through an open wound, so be wary swimming with cuts.

"That site may be tender, raw, warm to the touch, kind of appear as a skin infection and then once again as the bacteria progresses or infection progresses, it can get into the blood causing a more severe illness", Drennon said.

"Most infections occur from May through October when water temperatures are warmer". In 2017, there were two cases and also no fatalities.

Through this oyster, he contracted a gastrointestinal illness related to a flesh-eating bacteria on the oyster.

Leon, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor, and Gadsden counties have had no confirmed cases of flesh eating bacteria. Individuals who exhibit symptoms after entering the water with open wounds or after eating raw shellfish are urged to see their doctor.

Florida Health recommends not going in the water if you have fresh cuts or scrapes.
