(WKBN) – Select packages of frozen berries sold at Aldi stores nationwide are being recalled.

In cooperation with Wawona Frozen Foods, and out of an abundance of caution, ALDI is voluntarily recalling Season’s Choice Frozen Raspberries and Season’s Choice Frozen Berry Medley due to hepatitis A contamination.

ALDI has removed the affected product from select stores in Alabama, California, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and West Virginia. The products were also available for purchase to ALDI customers through the company’s partnership with Instacart, a grocery delivery service.

  • Season’s Choice Frozen Raspberries: 12 ounce bags, “best by” date of June 10, 2021, August 1, 2021 and August 23, 2021. UPC Code: 041498124199

To date, no illnesses related to these products have been reported. No other ALDI products are affected by this recall.

Wawona Frozen Foods is voluntarily recalling packages of frozen raspberries and frozen berry mixes containing raspberries sold at Aldi Grocery Stores and frozen raspberries sold at Raley’s Family of Fine Stores because they have the potential to be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

If customers have product affected by this voluntary recall, they should discard it immediately or return it to their local store for a full refund.

Consumers with additional questions can contact Wawona Frozen Foods, at (866) 913-0667.

Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease. A Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. In rare cases, particularly consumers who have a pre-existing severe illness or are immune compromised, Hepatitis A infections can progress to liver failure.

Illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking food or water contaminated with Hepatitis A.
