Hepatitis A Outbreak Information
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Food and Drug Administration are currently investigating a multistate outbreak of Hepatitis A illnesses that may be linked to consumption of a contaminated food product.
"Townsend Farms Organic Anti-Oxidant Blend" frozen berry and pomegranate mix sold at Costco, and Harris Teeter Organic Antioxidant Berry Blend have been voluntarily recalled because they may be contaminated with Hepatitis A virus (HAV).
For up-to-date information about the HAV outbreak and for important health advice, consult either the CDC website or the FDA website.
If you have consumed the product involved in the recall, you should wait at least 4 months before trying to donate blood again.
If you donated blood in the last 4 months (since February 2013) and may have consumed the recalled product or developed signs or symptoms of hepatitis after blood donation, please call our Donor Client and Support Center at 1-866-236-3276.
