Several restaurants across Ingham County and statewide may have received contaminated shipments of frozen strawberries linked to a Hepatitis A outbreak investigation.

The Ingham County Health Department wants people who consumed the recalled strawberries in the past 14 days to contact their heatlh care provider or the county's communicable disease control division at (517) 887-4308 regarding Hepatitis A vaccination if they have not already been vaccinated.

There have been no cases of Hepatitis A linked to strawberries in the area.

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease. It can have mild to serious effects. Illness generally occurs within 15 to 50 days of exposure, and includes fatigue, abdominal pain, yellow skin, abnormal liver tests, dark urine, and pale stool. If you have these symptoms call your health care provider.
