Creative Gourmet frozen berries are being taken off shelves across Australia after another hepatitis A scare hit the brand.

The food safety regulator issued the "precautionary" recall on Friday, asking anyone who had bought the Creative Gourmet Frozen Mixed Berries 300-gram product with a best-before date before January 15, 2021 to return it immediately to the supermarket for a refund.

The product was recalled after health authorities made a potential link between four new hepatitis A cases - including one in Victoria - and the berries.

About 45,000 packets of the berries are affected. The berries were sourced from Canada and China and packed in Australia.
