Supermarket Coop warns against a forest fruit mix in which hepatitis A has been found. The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) has announced that people should not eat the contaminated fruit.

It concerns Ardo Forest Fruit mix of 1 kilo, with a best before date until at least November 2024. The product is sold at Coop. People who bought the fruit can return it to the store.

mild form

Hepatitis A is an inflammation of the liver caused by the virus of the same name. The virus hardly causes any symptoms in children up to 6 years of age. But in adults, symptoms — fatigue, fever, upper abdominal pain, and nausea — can last for weeks. Hepatitis A is a relatively mild form of hepatitis, but the fatigue can last for months.

Coop does not say how the virus got to the forest fruits. Ardo was not immediately available on Friday. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) reports that people can become infected with hepatitis A by eating or drinking food or water that is contaminated with faeces containing the virus.
