Farmers urge consumers to 'buy Australian'

The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) urged consumers to buy Australian-grown produce in the wake of the hepatitis A outbreak.

VFF's Peter Toohey said stricter standards here ensured eating Australian-grown fruit was safe.

"We want to talk about the quality of Australian fruit and vegies — best in the world," Mr Toohey said.

"Most regulated in the world, to make sure that they're clean and healthy.

"Everything along the whole supply chain is checked off to make sure that we get really good, clean fruit. No contamination issues."

People who have bought the berries are being advised not to eat them.

The fruit should be thrown out or returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The recall and refund details are being advertised in national newspapers today.
