    ...public information statement...

    State health officials are reminding residents that paralytic
    shellfish poisoning known as p s p continues to be dangerous in
    personally harvested shellfish such as clams mussels and oysters.

    P s p can cause a tingling on your lips and fingertips followed by
    numbness in your arms and legs...and in some cases causing death.
    Anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical
    care. P s p cannot be cooked or cleaned from harvested shellfish
    but commercially grown shellfish is tested and considered safe.

    Most likely a SE wide announcement. A few people in Metlakatla got sick last week from eating cockles.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
