Frozen Berry Mix Linked to Hep A Outbreak

USA Today reports that a hepatitis A outbreak in the southwest is linked to Townsend Farms Organic Frozen Berry Mix sold by Costco. According to Townsend Farms, the contamination came from the Turkish pomegranate seeds included in the mix.

So far, all illnesses have been in the southwest US.  I'm pretty sure the frozen berry mix we have in the Nashville Costco has not had pomegranate seeds.

I hope not because I've definitely eaten the frozen berry blend within the affected time period - April 29 - May, 2013.
