So, what is Vibrio parahaemolyticus?
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a salt loving microorganism and an important pathogen of food poisoning in coastal areas in summer and autumn. Daily like to lurk in fish, shrimp, crab, shellfish and other seafood, occasionally through salted products or pickles, bacon, salted eggs, pickles and other spread. The point is that this pathogen is very common in the sea. In addition to seafood, other foods, including durian in this case, may be contaminated by seawater immersion. Once people eat, they can also lead to food poisoning!

Can you eat durian?
Can seafood be eaten easily with bacteria?
How to keep Vibrio parahaemolyticus out of the door?
In view of this incident, we should stop eating or selling the contaminated durian immediately, cut off the route of pathogenic bacteria invading human body, and go to the hospital in time if there is any discomfort.
In daily life, we should prevent food borne diseases caused by “side dissolution” from the following aspects:
- Don’t eat other food (not seafood) which is not clear from the sea.
- Seafood should be cooked thoroughly before eating, not raw seafood.
- The utensils used for processing seafood must be strictly cleaned and disinfected.
- During processing, raw and cooked utensils should be separated to avoid cross contamination, and food should be stored at low temperature.
- Vibrio parahaemolyticus is sensitive to acid. Proper amount of vinegar can be added when cooking and preparing seafood.
After the meal, the food should be cooked and kept in low temperature.
