The federal government is warning consumers to avoid certain brands of frozen berries sold at Kroger and other stores, including Dillons in Kansas, over fears of Hepatitis A contamination.

The berries were sold under the Kroger's Private Selection brand. The problem was found during a frozen berry sampling performed by the Food and Drug Administration. 

The potentially contaminated items have been removed from store shelves.  The FDA says that there have been no reports of hepatitis-A due to consumption of the berries.    

Customers who have questions may contact Kroger at 1-800-KROGERS.

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease.  It can range from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious illness lasting several months, and will make its appearance within 15-20 days after exposure. Hepatitis A vaccinations can prevent illness if given within two weeks of exposure to a contaminated food.

Here are the products being recalled:
