The FDA announced that the tainted goods were sold by FreshKampo and HEB at stores like Trader Joe’s, Aldi, Walmart, and Kroger. The affected consumers bought the fruit between March 5 and April 25.

Strawberries being stored in the freezer that were purchased from these stores during this time period should be thrown away immediately.
