Nature’s Touch Frozen Food Inc. is recalling various frozen mangoes from the marketplace due to possible Hepatitis A contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below. More information on this product recall can be found on the CFIA website here.

This recalled product should be thrown out or returned to the location where it was purchased.

Food contaminated with Hepatitis A virus may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause sickness. Short-term symptoms can include fever, rapid weight loss, nausea and abdominal pain followed by jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes). The disease varies from a mild illness lasting one to two weeks to a severe disease lasting several months. Severe illness from Hepatitis A infection is rare. If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your local health centre.

For more information, contact the Canadian Food Inspection Agency at 1-800-442-2342 or visit www.inspection.gc.ca. Sign up for food recalls at http://inspection.gc.ca/english/util/listserv/listsube.shtml.
