According to:

"Smoked oysters usually are found to be a light brown color. Occasionally, however, they show a green tinge. This is not a sign of spoilage, but a natural happening due to bad weather.

When the rough seas tear and destroy the oyster beds, the oysters sink to the bottom and must feed on the green seaweed. A large amount of the chlorophyll is retained, and the smoking cure will not cover the green.

The color does not affect the delicate flavor. It has, however, caused questions of concern from consumers."

Smoked oysters are not good for cats. Oysters contain enzymes that may be harmful to a cats digestive system if ingested.

The health benefits of canned smoked oysters in cotton seed oil is that it is a good source of protein and contains Omega-3 which is good for the heart. In addition, it is a good source of Branched Chain Amino Acids.

Flax Seed oil has a healthy mixture of different fats, mono and poly unsaturated and the oysters themselves have omega-3. All of these fats are essential to a healthy diet. The oysters are also protein rich and can be considered a good source of whole protein and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) On a downside the canned smoked oysters are probably heavy on the sodium.

Smoked Oysters are Good for You!Oysters are high in Omega-3 fatty acid and taurin, know to clear the arteries and benefit the central nervous system.Oysters are not only delicious, but they're also one of the most nutritionally well balanced of foods, containing protein, carbohydrates and lipids. Remarkably, oysters contain almost zero fat. The National Heart and Lung Institute suggest oysters as an ideal food for inclusion in low-cholesterol diets.Oysters contain more proteins and carbohydrates than milk. Oysters are an excellent source of vitamins A, B1 (thiamin), (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C ( ascorbic acid) and D (calciferol). Four or five medium size oysters supply the recommended daily allowance of iron, copper, iodine, magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese and phosphorus.Zinc is a proven immunity booster and may therefore help prevent colds and flu. Optimal zinc intake also promotes growth, mental alertness and aids in proper brain function. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition most people only get about one half of the recommended daily intake for zinc (15 mg. for adults). And just ONE oyster provides close to your entire daily requirements!Reference:Oysters, the ultimate in Gourmet Food. Retrived September 15, 2009, from:

Yes you can, just a slightly different taste, but still good.

It is a good idea to avoid all raw seafood during pregnancy. Sushi, oysters etc.

As long as your willing to eat them. This is a tough question to answer. If the oysters were on the verge of spoiling prior to cooking then that changes everything. It also depends on how they were cooked. Fried oysters will be fine refrigerated for a few days where as oyster stew will be good for just about a week. Seriously I wouldn't eat cooked oysters more than 3 or 4 days old.

At least a year. Probably longer.

Yes you can. In fact the taste AMAZING. They are REALLY good!

Yes you can still eat them. Even if they are slimy they are still good for you.They might not taste good either. It wouldn't make a difference.

Bottled green tea is not as good (some elements are lost and preservatives are added, along with sweetners, usually), but is still fairly good for you.

id say potatoes, baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower. shallots, green beans. But pretty much any vegetable that you like would be good with smoked turkey. I added a recipe you might like. check below.
