Don’t Get Hepatitis From These Recalled Frozen Berries

You never can quite trust that a fresh raspberry isn’t hiding an essence of mold before you bite into it, but a recent recall should give you pause about the frozen variety as well. Exportadora Copramar Ltda., a processing and shipping company from Chile, is voluntarily recalling more than a thousand cases of James Farm frozen raspberries due to the potential the fruits are contaminated with Hepatitis A—that’s according to a report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

FDA tests detected the presence of the contagious liver disease-causing virus in the fruits. A bout of Hepatitis A can last anywhere from a few weeks to months, and generally produced symptoms within 15 to 50 days of exposure. Symptoms include fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool. In rare cases, those with a pre-existing severe illness or who are immunocompromised and contract Hepatitis A progress to liver failure. A vaccination can prevent illness if given within two weeks of exposure to the virus, according to the FDA report.
