Hepatitis linked to sun-dried tomatoes

5th March 2012

The Health Protection Agency and the Food Standards Agency are investigating the risk of hepatitis A caused by eating sun-dried tomatoes.

Carlos Carvalho, from the HPA, said: "A single food source may be contaminated with more than one strain. A food-borne outbreak with multiple strains in at least two European countries is suspected." A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency said: "Sun-dried tomatoes are being investigated as one possible source of the hepatitis A cases. However, no food source has been conclusively identified and no other relevant cases have been reported in the UK."
