    It says they are packed in New Zealand, it's a brand new package.
    I am hesitant as I'm pregnant (not that Hep A would be good to get anytime!)

    No don't - just to be on the safe side - I haven't seen that brand before and just checked their website and it says they source their raspberries from Chile - being organic is good but I don't trust other countries handling procedures ( especially now!) and odds are they will be fine but just in case !

    From their website:

    Frozen Raspberries
    Due to lack of organic raspberry farms within NZ, we do require sourcing our raspberries via an organic farm in Chile, and more recently from Organic orchards in Serbia, however just like the rest of our berries we 100% guarantee these are organic as per the certification we receive from these orchards.

    Yes, I would.
    Packed in New Zealand almost certainly means imported berries, as PP mentioned, most likely from Chile. If that concerns you, the don't.
    Personally, I think the risk is so low of any harm being caused that I'd eat them without a second thought. I'm also pregnant.

    If I was pregnant then probably not. Otherwise, yes.

    I have this brand in my freezer, but it is just blueberries. The country of origin is printed in the same place as the best before date. Mine are from the US. Just check your packet.

    But if any way you are concerned, just don't eat them. Better safe than sorry.

    Yes i would.
    The issue was with the raspberries from china, or imported to china and washed in the contaminated water. If they havent been recalled then its not suspected that they are affected
