Norovirus risk prompts recall of some products containing raspberries
If you have recently bought food products containing raspberries, there is an important recall you should be aware of.

Anyone who purchased the items listed below up to June 4, inclusively, is advised by MAPAQ not to eat them, and may return them to the establishment where they were purchased for a refund.

Norovirus is highly contagious and can cause severe gastroenteritis.
Some symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
Raspberries contaminated with Norovirus sickened more than 700 Quebecers, some fatally, two summers ago and prompted a wave of recalls.
