2022 Strawberry Recall: FDA Investigates Hepatitis A Outbreak Associated with Fresh Kampo and HEB Organic Fresh Strawberries

LOS ANGELES — The FDA is investigating a hepatitis A outbreak linked to fresh organic strawberries.

The brands involved were Fresh Kampo and HEB.

Anyone who bought these strawberries between March 5th and April 25th, 2022 and froze them for later consumption should throw them away.

If you’re not sure what brand you bought, when you bought your strawberries, or where you bought them before freezing, the strawberries should be discarded, the FDA says.

They were sold at a number of stores, including Aldi, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, WinCo Foods and Walmart, according to the FDA.

The traceability research shows that cases in California, Minnesota and Canada report having purchased FreshKampo or HEB brand fresh organic strawberries before they became ill.

Disease onset dates range from March 28 to April 30, 2022.

Symptoms of hepatitis A usually appear within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water and may include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine, and light-colored stools. In some cases, especially in children under the age of six, hepatitis A infection can be asymptomatic, according to the FDA.

People with hepatitis A infection usually make a full recovery within one to two weeks; However, in rare cases, hepatitis A can become chronic and cause recurrent infections, according to the FDA. Chronic hepatitis A infection can lead to more serious health problems, including liver failure and death.

You are urged to contact your doctor if you think you have eaten these strawberries in the last few weeks and/or are experiencing symptoms of hepatitis A infection after eating these fresh organic strawberries.
