Harris Teeter and Costco have pulled an antioxidant berry blend from stores because it has been linked to an outbreak of hepatitis A.
The product made by Townsend Farms Inc. was sold at Harris Teeters stores April 19 to May 7 under the name Harris Teeter Organic Antioxidant Berry Blend in 10 ounce bags. The product was sold at Costco warehouse stores under the product name Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend in three pound bags.
Townsend Farms, Inc. issued a recall of certain lots of the frozen berry blend products on June 4.
The blend contains a mix of berries, cherries, and pomegranate. Initial reports suggested the possibly tainted lots of the product were distributed only on the West Coast, but it now appears it was distributed in Maryland and other places.
