Ministry for Primary Industries Increase Surveillance of Imported Frozen Berry Products

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has released a media statement today regarding imported frozen berries and four reported cases of Hepatitis A.

Their investigations have not revealed a specific cause, however there appears there could be an association with consuming frozen berries.

The investigations have not implicated fresh New Zealand berries in any way.
