Pork And Poultry Supplier Plays Down Hepatitis A Concerns

AUSTRALIA - One of the country's largest pork suppliers says there is little risk of its customers contracting hepatitis A, despite one of its staff falling ill from the virus earlier this month.

Toowoomba-based company KR Castlemaine Foods, in southern Queensland, is today advertising product recall notices in all national newspapers.

Over the next two days KR Castlemaine is recalling 6,000 cartons of product from across Australia.

The president of parent company Darling Downs Foods, Mike Adams, says the staff member has recovered from the potentially fatal virus, which she contracted from a friend visiting from overseas.
