We've eaten loads of different brands of mixed berries in the past 2 mths, not all of which I can remember - I'm pretty sure we had Creative Gourmet. I was heavily pregnant & am BFing a newborn, just wondering whether despite not showing symptoms I should get tested anyway? Is it worse off for newborns as I know it's not really problematic for adults.

The grossest thing about this is that Hepatitis A is transmitted via the faecal-oral route...which essentially means that someone/s involved in the handling of the berries has not washed their hands after taking a dump, and hence there are traces of faecal material in multiple packets of berries!!!
So...on this occasion, given the faecal contaminant was carrying the Hep A virus, we know about it. What about the other occasions when it has "just" been faeces, without the virus. Plenty of other microbes, but harder to trace.

Recall of Nanna's Frozen Berries
I also squirmed thinking about what was missed before Hep A triggered investigation... E. coli, giardia, cryptosporidium....

I'm freaking out a little.. We use those berries almost daily. Dd eats them all the time and loves them straight from the freezer and ds has them on is yoghurt. : O
We only finished a pack of the mixed berries last week and we still have a pack of the strawberries only in the freezer.
