The grocery store chain Kroger has recalled three varieties of frozen berries after the Food and Drug Administration discovered some of them tested positive for hepatitis A.

The recall includes the store’s Private Selection brand of frozen blackberries and two sizes of frozen berry medleys. The FDA said no customers have reported getting sick.

Routing testing by the FDA of a sample of the berries turned up positive for the disease.  According to the FDA, “customers who have purchased the above products should not consume them and should return them to a store for a full refund or replacement.”

Kroger has removed the items from store shelves.
