    I have McCain berries, which haven't been recalled but I'm thinking they'll end up in the bin too, I just don't trust any frozen berry.

    That's how I feel too, no recall but safer in the bin.

    Australian grown ones are fine - just check on your packet where they are made

    There was a big debate a few years ago against the use of Chinese grown frozen berries as they still use chemicals and pesticides banned here , but they still sell them - there are a few brands of organic Australian grown berries that are safe and chemical free

    The blueberries are from Chile, but the other three berries in the mixed berries are from China.

    Chile is a first-world country- the water quality is as good as ours, as is the soil. I haven't yet read any authoritative reports which have narrowed down the source of the contamination and determined if it is the Chinese produce, the Chilean produce, or the Australian packaging plant. However, the fact they've so far only recalled the mixed berries (and not the plain Nanna's blueberries which are from Chile) may be informative.

    Default Recall of Nanna's Frozen Berries

    I just finished the last bits of creative gourmet raspberries two days ago before the recall. Although it is not in the mixed berries pack, they are part of the ingredients. I wonder why they don't recall other berries but the mixed only. Unless they processed the mixed separately? I hope so because I am kinda scare. I am pregnancy.

    I also have half bag mango left which I have been using before this as well. It is in the bin now. Organic ones aren't easy to find. Only today, I saw them selling at local IGA.

    BTW, when I travelled to Chile, I was advised not to eat any fruit without peeling the skin. This says something about what they do with fruits.

    Are yours creative gourmet brand or Nannas brand? Only the Nannas brand have been recalled, not all brands and only the mixed berries ones.

    And evidently- Australia! It was suggested the kids and I could get vaxxed for Hep A before we went to Fiji last year. Everyone said not to bother, but TBH I have heard of several Hep A contaminations of food here in Australia that I decided it would be a good idea to get us all vaxxed.
    We go back for our boosters next month actually.
