The NSW Food Authority advises that the following products have been recalled :

The reason for this widespread recall is because of contamination with Hepatitis A.
Hepatitis A can cause inflammation or swelling of the liver. Symptoms include feeling unwell, aches and pains, fever, nausea, lack of appetite, abdominal discomfort, followed by dark urine, pale stools and jaundice (yellowing of the eyeballs and skin). Symptoms usually appear 4 weeks after infection, but onset can range from 2 to 7 weeks.
