Blackberries Linked To Hepatitis A Outbreak

An outbreak of Hepatitus A spanning three states has possibly been linked to blackberries sold at Fresh Thyme grocery stores.

Eleven cases of illness have been reported so far in Nebraska, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The FDA is urging people not to eat fresh blackberries purchased from Fresh Thyme stores, which have locations in 11 states.

Anyone who has recently eaten Fresh Thyme blackberries and isn’t vaccinated should see a doctor. Symptoms of Hepatitus A include fever, fatigue, nausea, and loss of appetite.
