In France, oysters are a traditional delicacy for the holiday season. 60,000 tons will be consumed in the next few days. The French government has issued an advisory warning people to be careful about shucking the oysters and predicting some 2,000 shucking injuries this season. NPR's Nick Spicer reports.
