Fresh organic strawberries have been connected to a suspected hepatitis A epidemic, according to the FDA.

If purchased between March 5 and April 25, the FDA advises against eating, serving, or selling particular brands of strawberries.

The US government has issued a recall after a multistate epidemic of hepatitis A infections was linked to a particular brand of strawberries.

People who bought strawberries and then froze them for later consumption should not eat them because they are past their shelf life.

Fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, jaundice, dark urine, and pale stool are all symptoms of hepatitis A.

Infection usually occurs 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water, and it can be passed from person to person through direct contact.

If consumers bought fresh organic strawberries branded as FreshKampo or HEB between March 5 and April 25, ate those berries within the last two weeks, and have not been vaccinated against hepatitis A, they should contact their healthcare provider right away to see if post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is necessary.
