    Default Recall of Nanna's Frozen Berries

    Due to Hep A.

    Info can be found here: http://www.9news.com.au/health/2015/...patitis-a-link

    From the article:

    "Consumers are being urged to dump a brand of frozen berries after four cases of Hepatitis A linked to the popular snack sparked an urgent health warning. The Victorian Department of Health has urged anyone in possession of the 1kg packs of Nanna's 'Fresh Frozen Mixed Berry', which are sold in IGA, Coles and Woolworths stores, to return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

    The recall affects all 1kg packs with a best before date up to and including November 22, 2016. Three adults in Victoria and one in NSW have contracted the potentially deadly Hepatitis A after eating the strawberries, raspberries and blackberries imported from China and the blueberries imported from Chile. The product is packed in China and distributed by Patties Foods in Bairnsdale, Victoria. Last night the health department requested Patties Foods recall the product, however nothing was posted on the Nanna's Facebook page until 1.20pm today.

    Customers have taken to social media to blast Nanna's over the delay in making the information publicly available. "You better hope to high heaven that my immune-suppressed child does not contract Hep A!" Facebook user Jimmy B Banger posted. "I think those affected should be having their medical costs paid for with such as serious breach like this," Renee Hampton posted.

    Hepatitis A is spread when traces of faeces containing the virus comes into contact with hands, food or water and then enters a person's mouth.

    Symptoms take between 15 and 50 days to appear and include abdominal pain, nausea, chills, fever, as well as yellow skin and eyes. Anyone experiencing symptoms should contact their doctor or Nurse on Call on 1300 606 024.

    "At least three people in Victoria, and two in NSW, who have eaten the frozen berries have since been diagnosed with hepatitis A.

    Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea and fever as well as yellow skin and eyes, and anyone experiencing these symptoms are urged to see a doctor."

    Just checked the freezer - yep - got the one pack of Creative Berries left - from the 5 that I've bought. Not ideal!

    Eek! This is horrible..

    Probably a stupid question but can you just return a half empty box to Woolies with no receipt? Will they still refund your money?

    Fingers crossed no more cases
