Kroger Recalls Frozen Berries
Insert one big KNOCK ON WOOD *here*.
I've never been a part of a recall--food, vehicle, equipment, or otherwise. It happens and of course, a company declaring a recall is the responsible thing to do. If there's a known issue, it is any organizations job to tell the consumer immediately. That is certainly what is going on right now as Kroger is recalling frozen berries sold in their stores. Buy frozen berries? You're going to want to check this out.
Kroger is a national brand of grocery stores that is the parent company of Kroger, Ralphs, Fry's, and Fred Meyer chains. Here in the Treasure Valley, Fred Meyer is the store that you'll recognize and would have shopped at.
Store labeled frozen berries, otherwise known as the generic brand, are what Kroger is calling back. Kroger has reason to believe that there may be a Hepatitis A contamination among them. If you think you may have some of these at home, you will need to look for "Private Selection" branded:
- Frozen Triple Berry Medley in 16 ounce and 48 ounce bags
- Frozen Blackberries in a 16 ounce bag
These berries have been removed from shelves by now so there's no chance you will be purchasing them moving forward, but if you have these at home, toss them out immediately!
