Strawberries linked to hepatitis outbreak
Fresh organic strawberries sold in Saskatchewan and Alberta have been linked to a hepatitis A outbreak.
The Public Health Agency of Canada says the strawberries were sold at Co-op stores in the two provinces between March 5th and March 9th.
The strawberries are past their shelf life, but consumers who may have frozen them are being urged to throw them out.
The agency says six people in Saskatchewan and four people in Alberta became ill with hepatitis A last month _ four were hospitalized. Hepatitis A is a virus that can cause liver disease and, in rare cases, liver failure and death.
