    It's actually quite infuriating - if you google hepatitis and norovirus and frozen raspberries there have been thousands of cases reported throughout the world in the last few years linked to Chinese and Chilean frozen berries!

    You think food standards Australia would be checking this stuff out before allowing it to be sold here but obviously not!

    What if the berries were cooked to make a compote, does the heat kill the virus? I had some rhubarb and berries compote two days ago at a cafe. They would probably use imported frozen berries. I'm pregnant so am very worried.

    Just read this - http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/foo...-1227223406604

    "MORE people are presenting with Hepatitis A and the list of recalled frozen berry products also continues to grow.
    Politicians and lawyers have started to weigh in on the health scare, with Australia’s labelling legislation and the rights of the people infected by the virus coming under scrutiny.
    Raspberries appear to be a potential common link in the imported fruit contamination that has left 10 Australians diagnosed with Hepatitis A.
    Victorian company Patties Foods extended its national recall to include Nanna’s Raspberries 1kg packs on Tuesday.
    Managing director Steven Chaur says the raspberry supplier is no longer used by the company and the recall is a precautionary measure.
    “Investigations through our supply chain have identified a specific source of raspberries as a potential common link to the possible safety issues raised by health authorities,” he said. Other products on the nationwide recall list are Nanna’s Frozen Mixed Berries 1kg packs, and 300g and 500g packs of Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries."


    I feel like I should throw my Coles brand raspberries out even though they've not been named just to be sure!

    Are there any frozen products with Australian grown berries? I usually check everything I buy but never thought about berries. We have Creative Gourmet raspberries in the freezer. Now I don't want to use them.

    I believe people were being advised to throw away creative gourmet because of the traces of banned pesticides found through testing for the hep a.
