Check your freezer for the above products, and if you have any recalled items, dispose of them immediately. The FDA is urging consumers to not eat, sell or serve the listed recalled frozen strawberries.

While the investigation is ongoing, there are five total illnesses and two hospitalizations that are believed to be connected to this recall. Hepatitis A is a very contagious virus, and those infected may experience symptoms like fatigue, nausea, vomiting and jaundice, among others. Hepatitis A infection could also be asymptomatic, especially for young children.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of the virus after eating any of the above recalled products, contact your health care provider immediately. Hepatitis A can easily spread to other food, drinks and surfaces, so be sure to follow these safe handling and cleaning procedures if your home may be contaminated.
