contact a health care provider. Symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, fatigue, jaundice, pale stool, and dark urine, per the FDA, which states that sometimes hepatitis A infections are asymptomatic, particularly in children. There is no treatment for hepatitis A, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); infected people are advised to rest and stay hydrated, per NLM, which adds that health care providers may suggest certain medications to relieve symptoms of a hepatitis A infection. In severe cases, infected people may require hospitalization.
Everyone is susceptible to a hepatitis A infection, though people who have received the hepatitis A vaccine or have been previously infected do have strong immunity, according to the FDA. The CDC recommends two doses of the hepatitis A vaccine (given six months apart) for all children once they turn one.
Anyone who ate the affected strawberries during the last two weeks and hasn’t received the vaccine should speak with a health care provider to determine the best course of action, per the FDA.
