Two South Australians have been hospitalised with Hepatitis A, believed to have been caused by them eating Creative Gourmet frozen pomegranate.
The product was recalled from Coles last month but SA Health is reminding South Australians to make sure they do not have the product in their freezers.
SA Health food and controlled drugs director Fay Jenkins said nationally there have been 11 cases linked to the outbreak, with two in South Australia.
“There’s a lady in her 60s and she is quite unwell and she is in hospital. There is a younger gentleman [aged 33] … and he’s actually been discharged from hospital,” Dr Jenkins said.
Symptoms of Hepatitis A include nausea, vomiting, fever, yellowing of the skin, dark urine and pale stools.
The infection can take from 15 to 50 days to develop.
