Restaurant Depot Recalls Frozen Raspberries for Hepatitis Risk

Restaurant Depot Recalls Frozen Raspberries for Hepatitis Risk

December 6, 2022 — Restaurant Depot / Jetro stores in 9 states have pulled certain James Farm® frozen red raspberries due to Hepatitis A.

The recall was announced after bag tested positive for the Hepatitis A virus during routine FDA testing. No illnesses were reported.

The product was grown in Chile, imported to the U.S. by Exportadora Copramar, and sold exclusively at Restaurant Depot / Jetro stores for restaurants and foodservice.

The products were sold in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.

The recall involves James Farm® frozen raspberries, which were sold in bulk 5-pound bags, with two bags packed into 10-pound cartons. The product can be identified by UPC Code: 76069501010 (on top of the carton) and Lot Code – CO 22-165 (on the bottom of the carton).

Each bag is labeled with “Product of Chile” and a Best-By Date of June 14th, 2024.

Hepatitis A is a highly-contagious virus that causes a liver disease. In recent years, frozen berries have been a recurrent source of Hepatitis A outbreaks and recalls.

The symptoms typically begin within 15-50 days after a person eats contaminated food. A mild illness may only last a few weeks, but in severe cases, the infection can last for months or cause liver failure.

The symptoms of a Hepatitis A infection include fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool.
