Kroger Berries Likely To Be Tainted With Hepatitis A recalled

Kroger grocery stores are one of the largest and most popular retail outlets for buying groceries and other household products in the US. There are around2800 stores under this brand. The minimum expectation from ventures as big as Kroger is that they will not sell contaminated products to its loyal customers, especially the ones who trust them blindly as far as quality is concerned. It doesn’t seem to be the case though as an official word has come out from the US Food and Drug Administration warning consumers about the frozen blackberries that were sold by Kroger in the “Private Selection” section, stating that they may be tainted with Hepatitis A.

According to the statement by the FDA, the berries should be thrown away instead of being eaten by the people and if anyone has already done it and have previously not been vaccinated against Hepatitis A, they should probably consult a doctor immediately. There are a few other items as well that have been put under the cautionary list by the FDA, especially for people who have shown symptoms of being sick on eating the frozen items. A list of it includes frozen triple berry medley from the private selection and weighing 48 oz., frozen triple berry medley belonging to the Private Selection and the weight being 16 oz., and frozen blackberries weighing 16 oz. and belonging to the Private Selection section as well.

Though there have been no reported cases of contamination from the above three products, since they all are kept together in one section, chances of contact transmission are more. What is more alarming is the fact that the Center of Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration have not been able to figure out the source of the infection of Hepatitis A and are still trying to figure it out.
