Frozen raspberries recalled in Arizona, other western states
BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Frozen red raspberries from a Washington state farm have been recalled from Arizona and other states in the West because of possible contamination.
WinCo Foods said Friday that the raspberries from Rader Farms of Bellingham, Washington, could be contaminated with norovirus.
The frozen berries were sold in stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Utah.
The 12-ounce packages have a “Best By” date of Feb. 13, 2021.
The Food and Drug Administration found contamination in a sample test.
WinCo said the berries have been removed from their shelves.
No one has reported getting sick but the Boise, Idaho-based company is urging people to throw away or return the products back to the store for a full refund.
The highly contagious norovirus can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Symptoms are especially severe for the elderly, young children and people with health issues.
