FDA Investigates a Hepatitis A Outbreak Potentially Linked to Strawberries
The strawberries were sold under the FreshKampo and HEB brands
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and other agencies are investigating a hepatitis A outbreak in the U.S. and Canada potentially linked to organic fresh strawberries. The agency says the strawberries were sold under the FreshKampo and HEB brands and purchased between March 5 and April 25.
The FDA is investigating 17 cases — 15 in California and one apiece in Minnesota and North Dakota. Canada's public health agency has identified 10 cases across two provinces: Alberta and Saskatchewan.
HEB and FreshKampo strawberries were sold at a number of retailers, including Walmart, Trader Joe's, Kroger, Safeway, Aldi and HEB, according to the FDA.
