Many of us are always worried when we hear of a food recall in the market. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is a new food being recalled around Australia. So, what food is causing another food poisoning outbreak?
Recently, there have been four reports of hepatitis A related to Creative Gourmet’s Mixed Berries. This case is very similar to the frozen berry scandal in 2015. Find out more about the initial case here.
Supplier of these frozen berries, Entyce Foods, has recalled 48,000 Creative Gourmet’s Mixed Berries 300g. These packets will be out in the market by March 2017, carries the number PP150118, and has a best by date of 15 January 2021.
The Info on the Recall
The first case reported was on the 4th of May but the actual recall of the product did not start until almost a month later. Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) confirmed that the victims of the outbreak come from Queensland, Victoria and South Australia. The berries are believed to be linked to the same stock reserves responsible for the last hepatitis A scare in 2015 when both Nanna’s range of frozen berries and Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries were owned by the same company.
Do you need to go check your freezer for these berries? Do you need to stay up to date with this story?
