Outbreak of Hepatitis A Virus Linked to Imported Frozen Berries (Ireland)
The FSAI states that in Italy there is currently an outbreak of the same strain of Hepatitis A virus as that identified in Ireland, which is also linked to the consumption of imported frozen berries. Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland are similarly dealing with outbreaks of Hepatitis A virus linked to imported frozen berries, however, the strain of Hepatitis A virus in the Scandinavian outbreak is different to that identified in Ireland and Italy.
I used to buy them and eat them frozen, probably about the only frozen fruit/vegetable you do not have to cook.
