If you have these frozen mango products in your home, do not eat them. If you have eaten these products within the last 14 days, contact your healthcare provider to see if vaccination against Hepatitis A may reduce your risk of becoming infected. If you have eaten these products more than 14 days ago, or suspect you have, self-monitor for the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Dark urine
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea / vomiting
  • Abdominal pain / cramping
  • Jaundice (yellowing of skin and/or eyes)

Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus. Hepatitis A is usually spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated with the virus. It may also be spread through close contact with an infectious person.

  1. Fresh fruit and veggies at the farmer’s market and mill market. Buy, cut and freeze your own. Ok, no mangoes but so what. I still have frozen wild blueberries from last year. They added a touch of class to my oatmeal this morning.
