There’s been a voluntary recall of the Creative Gourmet Frozen Berry 300g pack due to a potential hepatitis A contamination.
Entyce Food Ingredients Pty Ltd raised a precautionary recall of the berries today. The packs have been available for sale at IGA, Foodworks, Foodland, SPAR, Supabarn and other independent retailers via Metcash distribution nationally.
Victoria’s Deputy Chief Health Officer, Dr Brett Sutton, released a health alert to warn that the frozen berries could possibly be linked to an outbreak of Hepatitis A infection.
“As of 2 June 2017, Australian health authorities have identified four cases of hepatitis A infection that were acquired in Australia in 2017 and involve the affected strain of hepatitis A virus,” the alert said.
“One of these cases is an individual who resides in Victoria.”
Anyone who has consumed Creative Gourmet frozen mixed berries 300g packs with a best-before date of 15 January 2021 could be at risk.
