Swedish supermarket chain recalls frozen strawberries
Swedish supermarket chain Coop has announced that it's recalling its own-label frozen strawberries due a hepatitus A outbreak in neighbouring Denmark, reports news agency TT.
Danish authorities have traced a case of hepatitus A to the supplier of Coop's own brand 300 and 500 gram frozen strawberries.
The strawberries are sold in Coop supermarkets all over Sweden. Although there have been no positive tests on Coop's frozen strawberries as yet, it has taken the precaution to recall and stop selling the products.
Other strawberries, packaged in bulk and used by bakeries, are not covered by the recall. They have other suppliers, according to Coop.
The recommendation from the National Food Agency to boil bought frozen strawberries still applies.
