WinCo Frozen Red Raspberries Recalled For Norovirus

WinCo Foods of Boise, Idaho is recalling frozen red raspberries that were manufactured by Rader Farms of Bellingham, Washington, because the product may be contaminated with norovirus. Norovirus is highly contagious, and causes symptoms of vomiting, watery diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and nausea. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

WinCo Frozen Red Raspberries Recalled For Norovirus

WinCo Foods was told by the FDA that a sample of their product was tested and found to be contaminated with the virus. The FDA began a berry testing program earlier this year to test for norovirus.

This product has been removed from store shelves. The recalled product is WinCo Foods Frozen Red Raspberries, packaged in 12 ounce bags. The UPC number on the bag is 0 70552 30501 4. The best by code is Feb/13/2021. And the lot number is 4045902. The best by code is on the back side of the bag next to the UPC number. This product was distributed to WinCo Foods stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Utah.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook with it. Throw it away after first packaging it in a sealed container or wrapping it in foil or plastic wrap, and make sure you put it into a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid so other people can’t access it. You can also take it back to the store where you bought it. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product.

While most people who contract norovirus infections recover on their own without medical treatment, some, especially children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems can develop a systemic infection and may need more care.
