Kroger brand frozen berries recalled over Hepatitis A concerns

Hepatitis found in Kroger frozen blackberries

"The FDA is advising consumers not to eat and to throw away frozen fruit purchased from Kroger and other retail locations packaged under Kroger's "Private Selection" brand," stated the FDA alert.

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.

According to a statement released by the FDA, there are no reported cases of Hepatitis A linked to the consumption of the berries at this time. "The virus is one of several types of hepatitis viruses that cause inflammation and affect your liver's ability to function", according to the Mayo Clinic.

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