    I bought some the other day- it ale down to a choice of berries from China (nooooo!) or berries from Chile. We went with Chile it was just the Woolies select brand. We all ate some of the muffins I made and I am happy to report no side effects

    I just use the woolies select ones too. We get a lot of different frozen fruits in the select brand and don't have a problem with them.

    I use woolies or coles brand mixed berries and have no issues with them. I also buy locally grown strawberries that are frozen in 2kg tubs. If you can find a local producer/supplier then I highly recommend buying them because they taste so much better!

    Apparently the berries from Chile are still packed in China (I only found out after the last recall due to the HepA scare!).... so not much safer.

    I buy the speedy berries brand which is apparently from the USA. Not sure if they are any better, but I can't afford the organic Australian berries due to the amount we eat! I'm sure it's all much of a muchness.

    I haven't been buying any frozen, just a local punnet of fresh blueberries, strawberries and rasberries and putting them in a glad bag and freezing them. More expensive and not as many but at least I know where they are from.
