Recalls in America: frozen strawberries, cookies and biscuits


The International Com­pany for Agricultural Production & Process­ing (ICAPP), based in Ramadan City, Egypt, is voluntarily recalling frozen strawberries in response to the ongo­ing investigation into a multistate outbreak of Hepatitis A in the United States.

The Food and Drug Administration’s recall announcement, dated Sunday, stated that the company’s action was taken in consulta­tion with FDA because the Hepatitis A virus was detected in four lots of frozen straw­berries ICAPP ex­ported to the U.S. The federal agency added that ICAPP is work­ing closely with all of its distributors in this country to make sure that the recall is effec­tive.
