I thought it would be important to make a post about this….
Scary! There has been a Hepatitis A outbreak from Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend frozen berries (the ones sold at COSTCO)!
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today warned consumers not to eat Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend of frozen berries sold through Costco stores as they may be linked to a multistate outbreak of hepatitis A infections.
“People who have bought this product should discard it if still found in their home,” said Dr. Ron Chapman, CDPH Director and State Health Officer. “Anyone who has consumed this specific product in the last 14 days should contact their doctor to discuss possible hepatitis A prevention and treatment options.”
Costco has removed this product from stores and is notifying their member customers who have bought this product.
Thanks, Tiffany for the info
