Hepatitis A prompts berry recall

The federal and Quebec governments are alerting the public to avoid eating Montana brand frozen strawberries from Groupe Adonis Inc. because they might catch hepatitis A virus.

Some people have been infected after consuming the berries, says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on its website.

The ministère de l'Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) transmitted an alert to the news media late last week.

The berries were only sold at Adonis stores in Quebec and Ontario.
