Shellfish in Norway have low concentrations of E. coli and heavy metals, according to the results of a national monitoring program.  The Institute of Marine Research (Havforskingsinstituttet) reported the findings show Norwegian shellfish on the market are largely safe to eat.

Samples from different cities were analyzed throughout 2018 for chemical contaminants and microorganisms. The report shows 86 percent of 195 samples were below the E. coli limit and of 346 samples submitted by industry, 84 percent were lower than the limit value.
