Yikes, I just checked the freezer as we buy these to put in yogurt and make smoothies.

I would never buy fruit from a Sams Club or Walmart.

Another good reason I got my Hep A vaccine before that trip to Mexico!! Also, fortunately, I'm not a consumer of frozen mixed berries. (have my own supply in my freezer!)

I sincerely hope none of our Spark Folks come down with Hep A!! If you have consumed these, and are feeling out of sorts, or downright sick...please...get yourself to your doctor ASAP. If I recall right, Hep A can be "subclinical".... will have to reread that Health Link again!
