Are Oysters Safe to Eat During Hot, Summer Months?!

Summers in Texas are hot.

Sweltering hot.

August is the Big Daddy of all summer months, where temps in Round Rock, Lewisville, Tyler, College Station, and around the state of Texas frequently run 100 degrees.

So with temperatures so high in Texas, is it safe to eat raw oysters at Razzoo’s?!

The answer is YES!!!

Razzoo’s doesn’t source just any old oysters. We get the freshest, safest ones around. And in the hot, summer months it’s Gold Band Oysters all the way, everyday.

High Pressure = No Harmful Bacteria

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that during the warm summer months, the ocean water is also nice and warm. Warm water and raw oysters don’t go well together because the warm water can lead the oysters to harbor harmful bacteria. With Gold Band Oysters’ high pressure wash, it’s not even a worry.

Won’t the High Pressure Processing Make My Oysters Taste Weird?

Nope! Not one iota. Gold Band Oysters pride themselves on giving Razzoo’s customers the best oysters in Texas year round, all without compromising any taste. The taste is the same. The feel of the oyster is the same. Just without the harmful stuff. In fact, both the American Culinary Institute and the American Tasting Institute have given Gold Band Oysters Best Taste Awards for their flavorful oysters.

Bonus: Ease of Shucking!
