The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has confirmed the first case of hepatitis A in the state linked to a multi-state outbreak involving blackberries. In a news release, MDH said one case has been identified in Minnesota, in a patient who was hospitalized and has since recovered. Health officials have linked the outbreak to fresh, non-organic blackberries sold at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market between Sept. 9 and Sept. 30, 2019. Consumers who may have purchased and frozen these berries to use around the holidays are urged to throw them away.
