Health officials urge Michiganders to to test for hepatitis A following last week’s strawberry recall

01094Health officials said people around the state should be on lookout for hepatitis symptoms after last week’s recall of frozen strawberries.

Last week a multi state recall was issued for strawberries possibly contaminated with Hepatitis A. They weren’t sold in groceries, but were sold in establishments like restaurants and assisted living facilities.

Jennifer Eisner is the Public Information Officer for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

She said anyone who thinks they ate a contaminated strawberry should contact their doctor.

“If you’ve received the hepatitis A vaccine you don’t need to do anything else no further action is needed. If you are unvaccinated getting a single dose of the hepatitis A vaccine within the two week of exposure can prevent illness.”

Eisner said some symptoms of hepatitis A include yellow skin, abdominal pain, and dark urine.
