There is currently an outbreak of Hepatitis A associated with the consumption of frozen berries. In the January 12, 2023, Hepatitis outbreak update, a total of 35 locally-acquired cases of hepatitis A with identical or near-identical sequence profiles have been linked to the current outbreak since 28 June 2022. 3 new cases associated with the outbreak have been identified since the last update. 7 cases with the outbreak sequence profile did not report consuming berries. Of all cases, 34 are genotype IA and have an identical or very similar sequence profile, which indicates they likely came from the same source. Sequencing for one case linked to the outbreak is pending.
New Zealand Food Safety’s advice to consumers is to:
- Briefly boil frozen berries before eating them, or if you have a thermometer at home, ensure cooking temperatures exceed 85 degrees Celsius for 1 minute. Heated berries can be safely refrozen for later use.
- If you microwave berries, you should stir half-way through the cooking process to make sure they are cooked through. Microwave’s settings will vary, the important thing is to ensure the berries reach boiling.
- Wash your hands before eating and preparing food.
People who have these products at home should not eat them raw. Bringing them to the boil will make them safe, or they can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
If you are experiencing Hepatitis A symptoms like fever, jaundice, nausea, clay-colored stool, dark urine, malaise, abdominal discomfort, or vomiting, it is important to report it. It can help to detect and resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
Husband and I got dinner the night of January 2. I got steak tacos with cheese and pico. Very very simple order. It was the bottom of the barrel on the steak. Woke up at 3 AM feeling a lot of acid reflux. Went back to sleep.... Woke up at 5 AM and ran to the bathroom. I was doubled over on the floor with both projectile vomiting and projectile diarrhea.
I was extremely nauseous. I kept running back to the bathroom to throw up and hit the toilet. Finally an hour later I went to the ER. They put me on IV fluids, including anti nausea meds, because I kept throwing up. They couldn't find a vein because they all collapsed from dehydration. After a few hours I was released with strict orders to only drink watered down Gatorade and no food. It was hell. It took me a week to fully rebound. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Dehydration, Acid reflux
