Cornerstone Frozen Blackberries Recalled For Possible Norovirus

Cornerstone Frozen Blackberries are being recalled for possible norovirus contamination. The FDA started testing frozen berries for norovirus and hepatitis A in May 2019 after several outbreaks linked to those products sickened hundreds. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled product is Cornerstone Frozen Blackberries packaged in 16 ounce packages. The UPC number on the product is 8 55104 00765 9, the lot number is GC 1 1092 9 and the expiration date is April, 2021. These berries were distributed from April 2, 2019 through August 7, 2019. These berries were sold in retail stores in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maine, Florida, Alabama, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and West Virginia.

Norovirus is very contagious. It causes symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea, along with fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue.  Symptoms usually begin a few hours after eating food contaminated with the virus.

Most people recover within a day or two without medical attention, but some, including children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems, may need medical care and even hospitalization.

Retailers have removed this product from store shelves, but some may still be in consumers’ home freezers. If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook the berries. Throw it away in a sealed package so other people and animals can’t access it, or take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
