Frozen strawberries linked to Hepatitis A outbreak

The Berrien County Health Department is working with multiple agencies to make sure commercial food service establishments are not serving frozen strawberries that may be linked to a recent Hepatitis A outbreak.

The strawberries were distributed to commercial food service establishments. They were not sold directly to consumers.

The Berrien County Health Department says it is conducting interviews with food establishments and facilities that may have received the frozen strawberries from ICAPP to make sure the product has been removed.

“Yesterday November 3rd was when our health department was notified that there were facilities within our county and within the state that had received shipments of these potentially contaminated strawberries. So if anybody is having any symptoms of that, we recommend that they seek health care immediately through their health care provider or calling us at the Berrien County Health Dept,” said Gillian Conrad, Communications Manager with the Berrien County Health Dept.

The county has not received any reports of illnesses and doesn't believe there is a threat to public health.
