Health officials say they have traced a rare skin infection to raw seafood purchased at fish markets in New York City's three Chinatowns.

The Health Department says there have been 30 reported cases of the infection caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium marinum (my-koh-bak-TEER'-ee-uhm muh-REE'-nuhm).

All the victims said they had handled live or raw seafood from Chinatown fish markets in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens.
