March 16, 2020 — WinCo Foods recalled frozen blackberries and mixed Berry Medley products in Texas due to a risk of Norovirus contamination.
No illnesses were reported. The recall was issued after FDA tests on blackberries from Rader Farms in Lynden, Washington, tested positive for Norovirus.
Norovirus is a highly-contagious virus that typically causes a sudden episode of gastrointestinal illness that lasts for about 48 hours. The symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and nausea.
The recall involves the following blackberry products:
- WINCO FOODS FROZEN BLACKBERRIES, 16 OZ. BAG – UPC: 70552-30502, Best By Code Dec/09/2021.
- WINCO FOODS FROZEN BERRY MEDLEY, 16 OZ. BAG – UPC: 70552-30522, Best By Code Dec/09/2021.
- WINCO FOODS FROZEN BERRY MEDLEY, 32 OZ. BAG – UPC: 70552-30512, Best By Code Dec/09/2021.
WinCo removed the product from stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Utah.
Last year, WinCo recalled frozen red raspberries from Rader Farms after a bag tested positive for Norovirus. No illnesses were reported.
In 2019, Walmart also recalled Great Value® frozen blackberries, Save-A-Lot recalled Tipton Grove® mixed berries, and Cornerstone Premium Foods recalled frozen blackberries due to Norovirus.
WinCo is asking customers to throw out the products or return them to the store for a full refund. For more information, contact WinCo Foods at (1-800-824-1706) (Business hours: Mon-Fri 7:30-4:30 MST).
