Kroger recalls frozen berries due to hepatitis A concern

Kroger recalls frozen berries due to hepatitis A concern

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning Friday concerning hepatitis A virus (HAV) contamination of frozen blackberries under the Kroger grocery store "Private Selection" brand.

The recall came after the FDA tested a sample of the frozen berries and found it to be contaminated with hepatitis A.

The FDA is working with the manufacturer on this matter and is continuing to investigate to determine whether there are other implicated products.

Hepatitis A, a contagious liver disease, may cause fatigue, stomach pain and jaundice.

The items that were recalled include: the frozen triple berry medley (48oz), triple berry medley (16oz) and the frozen blackberries (16oz).

However, Kroger's recall notice on the FDA website says all of the company's grocery chains received the recalled frozen berries. They normally occur within 15 to 50 days of exposure.

Fred Meyer, which is a subsidiary of Kroger, has removed potentially affected items from store shelves.
