Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Strawberries are subject to this recall:

The recalled Frozen Strawberries were all distributed for sale to and use in food service establishments nationwide, not for use in food products offered for retail sale to US consumers.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the FDA, although none of ICAPP’s own testing through an established surveillance program or through third party testing of retained samples has identified the presence of Hepatitis A in any of its products, ICAPP has decided to recall all Frozen Strawberries that it has imported into the United States since January 1, 2016 out of an abundance of caution.

==> For information about Hepatitis A, please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Frozen Strawberries, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the fruit to the distributor where you purchased it for a full refund

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect food.
