Strawberries recalled over hepatitis A contamination

Frozen strawberries sold in Quebec and Ontario by Groupe Adonis have been recalled because of a possible hepatitis A contamination.

Some cases of illnesses associated with the consumption of the strawberries have been reported. Anyone who has purchased the brand is advised to not eat them.

Hepatitis A signs and symptoms typically don’t appear until you’ve had the virus for a few weeks. But not everyone with hepatitis A develops them. If you do, hepatitis signs and symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sudden nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort, especially on the upper right side beneath your lower ribs (by your liver)
  • Clay-colored bowel movements
  • Loss of appetite
  • Low-grade fever
  • Dark urine
  • Joint pain
  • Yellowing of the skin and the whites of your eyes (jaundice)
  • Intense itching

These symptoms may be relatively mild and go away in a few weeks. Sometimes, however, hepatitis A infection results in a severe illness that lasts several months.
