Hepatitis outbreak traced to Costco product, local families exposed

A frozen berry product called Townsend Farms Organic Anti-oxidant Blend sold at many regional stores, including Costco, is at the heart of a Hepatitis A outbreak affecting six victims in California, two in Reno, and many others across several states.

So far, there have been four families from Mono County and one family from Inyo County that are known to have been exposed to the product, but there have been no outbreaks of the illness in the Eastern Sierra, according to local health officials.
