Food Microbiology - Targeted Surveys - 2016 - 2017 Viruses in Sun-Dried Tomatoes - Final Report
A targeted survey analyzed 221 samples of air-packed sun-dried tomatoes for viruses. Of those samples, 99.1% were found to be free of viruses. Samples were analyzed for Hepatitis A (HAV) and Norovirus (NoV) (Genotype I and II (GI, GII)). NoV (GI) RNA was not detected in any of the samples tested. HAV RNA was detected in one imported sample and NoV (GII) RNA was also detected in one imported sample. The CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities for all viral RNA positive samples. No illnesses were reported in association with any of the positive samples.
