Hepatitis A is a virus that affects the liver. You may not see symptoms right away after you have been contaminated. Talk to your doctor about the next steps and monitor your health if you have eaten these recalled products, and be aware that the virus can also be spread through personal contact. If you know someone who regularly buys these berries, let them know about this recall!

We had a lot of recalls last year, including beef that had unidentified materials in it! Do you remember that?
