What is the Norovirus

Norovirus is one of the most common causes of gastroenteritis. Symptoms include - nausea (often sudden onset), vomiting (often projectile) and watery diarrhoea. Symptoms begin around 12 to 48 hours after becoming infected. The illness is usually brief, with symptoms lasting only about 1 or 2 days. Most people make a full recovery within 1-2 days, however some people (usually the very young or elderly) may become very dehydrated and require hospital treatment.

The FSAI recommends boiling imported frozen berries for one minute before consumption as a result of reported outbreaks of norovirus and hepatitis A virus in imported frozen berries across Europe in recent years. This is particularly important when serving these foods to vulnerable people such as nursing home residents.
