Symptoms of Hepatitis A
Additionally, if you ate some of these strawberries, depending on when you ate them, there are two things you can do.
1) If you ate them a while ago and are already experiencing symptoms, like "fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine, and pale stool," you should contact your doctor.
2) If you ate them in the last 14 days, and HAVEN'T been vaccinated against Hepatitis A, you should speak with a healthcare professional immediately to see if preventative care is the best treatment for you.
