June 12, 2023 — Wawona Frozen Foods has issued a recall for certain bags of Organic Daybreak Blend® that were sold in 2022 at Costco because it may be contaminated with Hepatitis A.
The recall involves 4-lb. bags of Organic DayBreak Blend®, a frozen fruit product that was distributed to Costco in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah and Washington from April 15, 2022 to June 26, 2022.
This product was sold last year, but consumers may still have it in their freezers because the recalled bags have “Use By” dates of 09/23/2023, 09/29/2023, 09/30/2023 and 10/18/2023.
The problem is that the product contains organic frozen strawberries that were grown in Mexico and recalled after a Hepatitis A outbreak.
According to the CDC outbreak investigation, at least 9 people were infected with Hepatitis A after eating frozen strawberries in a variety of products.
The illnesses were reported in 3 states: Washington (6), California (2) and Oregon (1). Three people were hospitalized with a severe illness.
Health officials are urging people to seek medical attention if they develop symptoms of infection with Hepatitis A, a virus that causes a highly-contagious liver disease.
The following symptoms may appear within 15 to 50 days after eating contaminated food: fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool.
