Hepatitis A Outbreak from Frozen Berries
An outbreak of Hepatitis A was recently identified in six states including California. The outbreak has been linked to a product called Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend of frozen berries. They are sold through Costco stores. Costco has begun notifying their customers who have purchased this product of the risk and advised them to discuss the risk with their physician.
Hepatitis A is a vaccine preventable viral infection that is spread via the fecal oral route but can be associated with contaminated food products. Symptoms can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine, joint pain and jaundice. If symptoms occur, they usually appear 2 to 6 weeks after exposure.
After exposure, the illness can be prevented with the Hepatitis A vaccine. These are effective when given within 14 days of the last exposure and are more effective when given earlier.
