The Centers for Disease Control is working with public health officials in several states, as well as, the US Food and Drug Administration to investigate a multistate outbreak of Hepatitis A.


While the CDC is not aware of any cases of Hepatitis A cases related to this outbreak in Alaska at this time, it appears the suspect food product was distributed in Alaska.


CDC Officials say that 11 of 17 reportedly ill people interviewed reported eating ‘Townsend Farms Organic Anti-Oxidant Blend,’ a frozen berry and pomegranate seed mix reportedly purchased ‘Costco’ markets; however, investigators are continuing to to determine if this product was sold at other stores or venues.
