The Florida Health Department told ABC7 Sarasota that the bad oysters were eaten on July 8 and two days later the man died from gastro-intestinal illness.

A 71-year-old Florida man has died from bacteria that he got from eating raw oysters, state authorities have said.

His death came two days after he ate oysters containing the flesh-eating bacteria known as Vibrio vulnificus, which can be found in raw shellfish, according to news station WWSB. Typical symptoms for the infection include fever, diarrhea, and vomiting, but in rare cases, the bacteria can become a "flesh-eating disease".

Though sometimes labeled a "flesh-eating" bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus can not attack healthy skin, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Some shellfish fans look out for their health by only eating raw seafood in months ending with an "R", meaning September, October, November and December.

This is the first confirmed case of a Vibrio vulnificus infection in Sarasota in 2018, according to a Florida Department of Health statistic.

People with the preexisting medical condition have 80 times higher risk for Vibrio vulnificus bloodstream infections compared with healthy people. According to the department's website, there were no similar cases in 2017, while three cases were recorded back in 2016.

The best method of prevention is to simply avoid eating oysters raw.

For people with serious vibriosis, antibiotics can treat some cases.

In these instances, many people with the infections have to be admitted into ICU, with between 15 and 30 percent of cases proving to be fatal. Other cases result in amputations or death. Those with underlying health conditions and weakened immune systems are the most likely to get infected, according to the CDC. Warmer waters (which are becoming more common) make raw oysters riskier to consume, Bill Marler, a lawyer who focuses on food poisoning cases, previously told Business Insider.
