Frozen Strawberries Sold at Costco and Trader Joe’s Recalled Over Hepatitis A Risk

  • March 18, 2023

The strain of hepatitis A is genetically identical to a strain that caused an outbreak of hepatitis A infections in 2022, which was linked to fresh organic strawberries also imported from Baja California, Mexico.

The two vendors in the latest cases, California Splendor and Scenic Fruit, sold the frozen strawberries to an array of retailers under several brand names, including Kirkland Signature, Made With, PCC Community Markets, Simply Nature, Trader Joe’s and Vital Choice, the F.D.A. said.

“Although hepatitis A has not been detected on this product, out of an abundance of caution, consumers should stop consuming the product and return it to their local store for a refund,” Scenic Fruit said in a statement.

Scenic Fruit said it had ceased the production and distribution of the product as the F.D.A. and the company investigate.

California Splendor, whose products had been sold at Costco stores in Hawaii, Los Angeles and two San Diego business centers, said in a statement that hepatitis A had not been detected in its products.
