    I found John West Smoked Oysters in sunflower oil here... I havent tried them so dont know if there any good but might be worth looking out for?
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    Try eating some raw ones. Washington state has some fabulous oysters to choose from.

    Uh, no, he didn't. Quite the opposite.

Just don’t keep the stuff in your house (not a problem; it’s flavorless, odorless, and completely boring), and keep dining out in cheap chain restaurants to a minimum (or you could do what I do and request everything be cooked in butter), and you should be able to avoid sunflower seed oil.

    He said in there that SOME forms of Sunflower Oil are ok based on how they are processed. You can assume that the ones being used in the oysters in question are not of quality sources or processing. Plus they have been sitting around a long time and may already be rancid.

    That, and if the oil was specifically used because it has no flavor, then you might as well get the oysters packed in water at that point.

    Harvested in South Korea; cans not bpa free. I wouldn't cry over the absence of these oysters.
