Kroger supermarkets are one of the largest and most popular retail establishments in the United States for purchasing groceries and other home goods. This brand has approximately 2800 locations. The least that should be expected from a company as large as Kroger is that it will not sell tainted products to its loyal clients, especially those who put their faith in them blindly when it comes to quality. However, this does not appear to be the case, since the US Food and Drug Administration has issued an official warning to consumers concerning frozen blackberries sold by Kroger in the «Private Selection» area, claiming that they may be compromised with Hepatitis A.
According to the FDA statement, the berries should be thrown away rather than consumed by individuals, and if someone has already done so and has not been vaccinated against Hepatitis A, they should definitely see a doctor very away. The FDA has also placed a few more things on the cautious list, particularly for persons who have experienced symptoms of illness after consuming frozen foods. Frozen triple berry medley from the Private Selection area weighing 48 oz., frozen triple berry medley from the Private Selection section weighing 16 oz., and frozen blackberries weighing 16 oz. all belong to the Private Selection department.
Though there have been no known occurrences of contamination from the aforementioned three goods, the risks of contact transmission are higher because they are all housed together in one location. What’s more concerning is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have yet to determine the source of the Hepatitis A infection.
