No local illness reported from strawberry recall

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is working closely with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on a nationwide recall of frozen strawberries contaminated with Hepatitis A.
The recall was issued Oct. 30. Four days later, the tri-county health department received information that local food establishments and organizations within the health jurisdiction may have received a delivery of these contaminated strawberries. No frozen strawberries were sold directly to consumers.
Health department employees conducted follow-up interviews with the organizations and have confirmed that two food establishments may have served the product during the past 21 days.
At this time, the health department is not aware of any cases of Hepatitis A within the three counties that are linked to frozen strawberry consumption.
