A batch of the popular Ardo Frozen Fruitberry Mix has been urgently recalled by the Food Safety Authority after Hepatitis A was found to be present in the food. It is a popular product, stocked in stores and supermarkets across Ireland.
The FSAI says hepatitis A can make people sick for a number of months.
FSAI said in a statement: “The above batch of Ardo Frozen Fruitberry Mix is being recalled due to the presence of hepatitis A. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batch.
“Hepatitis A infection is an acute disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus.
“Symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, and jaundice.
“Some people experience a fairly mild illness and recover within a couple of weeks. Other people develop more severe symptoms and may take months to fully recover.
“Older people are more likely to have more severe symptoms and some infected children do not have any symptoms at all.
