Food Recall Warning – Various frozen mangoes recalled due to Hepatitis A
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Friday that Montreal-based Nature’s Touch Frozen Food is recalling various brands of frozen mangoes because they may be contaminated with the hepatitis A virus.
The Public Health Agency of Canada said the mangoes are the likely source of an ongoing outbreak of Hepatitis A in Quebec and Nova Scotia.
The frozen mangoes were distributed in New Brunswick, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
The following products should not be consumed according to the CFIA:
- Nature’s Touch Frozen Mangoes (2 kg)
- Compliments Frozen Mangoes (600 g)
- Irresistible Frozen Mangoes (600 g)
- President’s Choice Frozen Mangoes (600 g)
These are the products and product numbers/UPCs to look out for.
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have the recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Hepatitis A virus may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with this virus may cause hepatitis and produce a self-limited disease that does not result in chronic infection or chronic liver disease. The illness is usually mild and starts about 15 to 50 days after the contaminated food is eaten. It generally goes away by itself in a week or two, although it can last up to 6 months in some people. It can cause inflammation of the liver, and symptoms may include fever, low appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, and yellowing in the whites of the eyes and the skin (jaundice).
