Frozen Berries & Hepatitis A Warning

Many of you may have heard the recent news about the food health scare across Australia involving frozen berries.

A public health investigation is currently underway into the national outbreak of locally-acquired hepatitis A during January and February 2015 which is linked to eating frozen berries during the incubation period.

Several lines of frozen berries under the “Nanna’s” and “Creative Gourmet” brands are now subject to a national recall. See the NSW Food Authority website for details on products recalled.

If you feel you or your family have been affected by this then please read the following information sheet GP Alert: Hepatitis A – 17 Feb 2015 and contact your local GP immediately.
