Kalamazoo County health officials say a restaurant in Schoolcraft is involved in a national recall of frozen strawberries contaminated by hepatitis-A. They say Marjo's received some of the affected berries during the last two weeks.

No cases of the disease have been reported in the county linked to the recall. But county officials say diners who ate strawberries at the restaurant in the last 14 days should get hepatitis-A vaccinations as soon as possible.
