Company Announcement

Exportadora Copramar is recalling 1260 cases of James Farm frozen raspberries due to the possibility that the product is contaminated with hepatitis A.

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tests indicated the presence of hepatitis A in James Farm branded frozen raspberries, identified by UPC code: 76069501010 and Lot code – 22-165.

Hepatitis A is an infectious liver disease that results from exposure to the Hepatitis A virus, including food. It can range from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. Illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days of exposure and includes fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine, and pale stools. Hepatitis A vaccination can prevent disease if given within two weeks of exposure to a contaminated food. In rare cases, especially consumers who have a pre-existing serious illness or are immunocompromised, Hepatitis A infection can progress to liver failure. Persons who may have consumed affected product should consult with their health care professional or local health department to determine if vaccination is appropriate, and consumers with symptoms of Hepatitis A should contact their health care professional or local health department immediately.
