FDA reported that Chilean raspberries were withdrawn from the US market due to the risk of hepatitis A infection

More than a thousand boxes of James Farm brand raspberries were withdrawn by the exporter Copramar from the United States.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that 1,260 boxes of James Farm raspberries were recalled because hepatitis A was detected.

The FDA urged people who were able to consume the product to contact a doctor as soon as possible due to the risk.

The contaminated raspberries belonged to lot No. CO 22-165 and had an expiration date of June 14, 2024.

“In rare cases, particularly users who have severe pre-existing illness or are immunocompromised, hepatitis A infection can progress to liver failure,” the agency warned.

“There have been no reports of illness or adverse reactions to date related to this product,” the FDA clarified.

The raspberries reached nine states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.
