Although the risk is very low if you have consumed this product you may be one of the eligible ones to receive this vaccine. If it were me I would much rather be safe than sorry.
BCCDC, the regional health authorities and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have been investigating five cases of hepatitis A in people who have consumed Pomeberry Blend frozen fruit. On Thursday April 5 the BCCDC warned the public to not consume Pomeberry Blend frozen berries and to discard them. The CFIA issued a food recall on the same day. We now have additional laboratory information which has confirmed a link to four of the cases
