AUSTIN (KXAN) – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced Saturday an investigation into FreshKampo or H-E-B brand organic strawberries for hepatitis A.
The FDA said not to eat, serve or sell those brands of strawberries if bought between March 5 and April 25.
“Currently, the potentially affected FreshKampo and HEB products are past shelf life. People who purchased FreshKampo and H-E-B fresh organic strawberries between March 5, 2022, and April 25, 2022, and then froze those strawberries for later consumption should not eat them,” the FDA said.
Known retailers for these products are:
- Sprouts Farmers Market
- Trader Joe’s
- Weis Markets
- WinCo Foods
The FDA recommended contacting a healthcare provider if you think you may have symptoms of a hepatitis A infection after eating these fresh organic strawberries, or if you believe that you have eaten these strawberries in the last two weeks.
According to the FDA’s website, the investigation is still ongoing.
H-E-B said in a statement it has not received or sold organic strawberries from the supplier under investigation since April 16.
“All strawberries sold at H-E-B are safe. No illnesses from strawberries related to the FDA investigation have been reported at H-E-B or in Texas,” H-E-B said.
