Luce, Mackinac, Alger, Schoolcraft District Health Department received information from the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) and Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDARD) that food establishments and organizations within the district have been impacted by the recent recall of frozen strawberries that were contaminated with hepatitis A.

 

Upon notification on Thursday, November 3, 2016, LMAS environmental health staff have been working closely with local food establishments and organizations that received potentially contaminated frozen strawberries to identify dates they may have been served and to ensure that all products have been removed. At this time, there have been no cases of hepatitis A due to consumption of contaminated strawberries in Luce, Mackinac, Alger, or Schoolcraft counties.

 

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that is a result of infection with the hepatitis A virus. Hepatitis A can range in severity from mild illness, lasting a few weeks, to severe illness, lasting several months. Illness generally occurs 15 to 50 days following exposure and includes fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine, and pale stool. Anyone with symptoms of hepatitis A should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

 

The following locations have received and have possibly served the potentially contaminated strawberries. All facilities are working cooperatively with LMAS to protect the health of our residents.

 

Dave’s Pine Bar, W14001 Melville St., Engadine MI

Mackinac Grill, 251 S State St., St. Ignace MI

 

The Hepatitis A vaccine as a post exposure treatment is only effective if received within 14 days of consumption. If you consumed products containing frozen strawberries at Dave’s Pine Bar between the dates of October 24 and October 28, 2016 or the Mackinac Grill between the dates of October 24 and October 31, 2016 please check with your medical provider to ensure that you have received the Hepatitis A vaccine or call LMAS District Health Department at 906-387-2297 x415 Monday through Thursday from 8am-4pm or after hours and on weekends at (800) 562-4832 and select “9” for the call center.

 

LMAS District Health Department will continue to monitor this recall and keep our counties updated on any new information. 

 

Local Public Health Departments across the State are working together to update facilities that have been affected by the recall and that may have served the contaminated frozen strawberries. A listing of facilities that received the possibly contaminated product will be maintained by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development. However, through follow-up by LMAS District Health Department Environmental Health staff, at this time we believe that only the facilities noted above have received and possibly served the potentially contaminated product between October 24 and October 31, 2016.
