The recalled products are the Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley in the 48-ounce size, the Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley in the 16-ounce size and the Private Selection Frozen Blackberries in the 16-ounce size.

The Food and Drug Administration discovered the contamination.

The Kroger Co. said the Private Selection frozen berries, manufactured by Townsend Farms, are sold at Kroger grocery stores and affiliates, including, but not limited to, Ralphs, Dillons, Smith's, King Soopers and Fry's.

All 3 of these products are available at Fred Meyer grocery stores in Bellingham according to the company's online shopping service.

The FDA is working with the manufacturer on this matter and is continuing to investigate to determine whether there are other implicated products.

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that results from exposure to the Hepatitis A virus, including from food. It can last a few weeks or several months and can cause liver failure in rare cases.

Consumers who've eaten the recalled frozen berries are urged to consult with their health care professionals to determine whether vaccination is appropriate. HAV is spread when someone ingests the virus, usually through person-to-person contact or from eating contaminated food or drink.

You should throw the products away.
