The Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall for strawberries after the fruit was linked to more than two dozen cases of hepatitis A.
Although the strawberries affected by the recall have passed their shelf life, investigators say they're concerned that people may have bought the infected fruit and froze it, according to the FDA. The infected strawberries were distributed between March 5th and April 25th, the agency says.
So far, at least 27 cases of hepatitis A have been diagnosed in the U.S. and Canada as a result of people eating the strawberries, with 12 of the victims requiring hospitalization, an FDA statement reads. Fifteen of the cases have turned up in California, per the FDA. If you have an infected batch, or if you're unsure whether your batch is infected, the FDA recommends just throwing the strawberries away.
