Frozen Fruit Pulled From NH Aldi Stores Over Hepatitis Fears
Customers who've shopped any of New Hampshire's eight locations are affected by this voluntary recall.
With growing season long behind us, many are freezing their fruit for smoothies until next season. Raspberries are loaded with antioxidants, and a great way to fend off seasonal colds. For those who don't PYO, purchasing frozen fruit is the convenient way to go. If you've shopped Aldi Grocery Stores, or Raley’s Family of Fine Stores and purchased raspberries, you'll want to take them back. According to NECN, they've been recalled after it was discovered that some were potentially contaminated with Hepatitis A virus.
The recall is voluntary, and affects Aldi’s frozen "Season’s Choice Raspberries" and "Season’s Choice Berry Medley" products and "Raley’s Fresh Frozen Red Raspberries." So far, no one has been affected, and there haven't been any reported cases of acute HAV according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
Customers should dispose of all fruit, or return it to the location of purchase for a full refund, according to NECN.
