Another common source of food poisoning is berries, including strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

The CDC traced an outbreak of hepatitis A in 2013 to a frozen berry mix. A 1997 outbreak that sickened thousands of children via school lunches was also traced to hepatitis A-contaminated frozen strawberries (possibly from a farm worker in Baja California, Mexico).
