About Hepatitis A
Hepatitis A is a disease that can cause inflammation of the liver. Hepatitis A can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months requiring considerable medical intervention. People get the Hepatitis A virus by eating contaminated food or water or through direct or indirect contact with an infected person’s stool/feces. Adequate vaccination can protect against the Hepatitis A virus. Adequate hand-washing after using the toilet or changing diapers can reduce the risk of catching the Hepatitis A virus.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Fruit Blend, please do not consume it. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
