The FDA, CDC, and the Canadian public health and food inspection agencies announce the recall of FreshKampo and HEB fresh organic strawberries purchased between March 5 and April 25, 2022 and frozen. Hepatitis A outbreaks have been traced to these strawberries. They were sold at: Aldi, HEB, Kroger, Safeway Sprouts Farmers Markets, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Weis Markets, WinCo Foods, and other retail outlets. If you bought and froze these strawberries, take them out of your freezer now and destroy them. Restaurant owners…. That goes for you too! If you by chance have eaten these strawberries in the past 2 weeks and have never been vaccinated against hepatitis A or had this infection, check with your healthcare team about post-exposure prophylaxis. For more information, call the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator for your state ,and you can find that number online.
