The race to find answers to why a mysterious hepatitis A outbreak has killed six children, hospitalized seven in Cincinnati alone, and spread to more than 200 others across 36 states, may have its first big clue.

investigators with the US Food and Drug Administration are reviewing two brands of organic strawberries for a possible link to the outbreak. In an announcement released over the weekend, the FDA urged individuals who purchased FreshKampo and HEB strawberries from March 5 to April 25, to not eat them. The warning includes berries that were purchased and then frozen.

The strawberries are sold at the following locations:

  • Kroger.
  • Aldi.
  • HEB.
  • Safeway.
  • Sprouts Farmers Market.
  • Trader Joe’s.
  • Walmart.
  • Weis Markets.
  • WinCo Foods.
