Importer of Chinese berries says no 'verified' link to Australian Hepatitis A outbreak

Patties Foods has claimed its imported frozen berries have no "verified" link with the Hepatitis A outbreak in Australia.

The company's 1kg packs of Nanna's frozen berries have been blamed for an outbreak of the virus that has been confirmed in 18 cases across the country.

Thousands of others, from school students to NRL players, are being monitored for symptoms after fears of exposure.

However, importer Patties Foods has said its products were recalled despite a lack of firm evidence.

CEO Stephen Chaur issued a statement yesterday claiming the company's food safety testing was more rigorous than the Australian standard.

"At this point, we have not been provided any remaining consumer product to test from the 13 confirmed HAV cases to clinically verify there is indeed a link with the Nanna’s Mixed Berries," he said.

The berries have been pulled from store shelves and extra testing is underway to determine the nature of the alleged link between the product and the virus.
