Gloria Sánchez interviewed on TV-À Punt about the health alert for Hepatitis A virus in frozen berries

Our colleague Dr. Gloria Sánchez was interviewed yesterday on the TV channel À Punt's News program, in relation to the health alert issued by the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN) due to the presence of Hepatitis A in frozen berries comingfrom Belgium.

This fact is very unusual since the presence of the virus in frozen bags could only be due to some contamination at the time of collection or through contaminated water since the virus is transmitted by the fecal-oral route. Gloria Sánchez points to the need for effective water treatment plants to eliminate these viruses and the importance of workers having adequate facilities in fields and factories.
