Hello everyone! It’s Thursday in Southampton. Diane Witek here with all the good to print on what’s happening locally. Keep scrolling for the scoop.

First, today’s weather forecast:

Cloudy and sunny weather. High: 72, low: 60.

Here are the top stories in Southampton today:

  1. An outbreak of hepatitis A has been linked to fresh organic strawberries sold at stores including Aldi, Walmart and Trader Joe’s (see full list). Strawberries under the FreshKampo and HEB brands were sold between March 5 and April 25. If you’ve frozen strawberries and you don’t know what brand they are, you should dispose of them immediately, regulators said. (Patch)
