Just a Brief Follow-Up to the Alert from the CDC on Frozen Berries...

I just received this from the Physican Group I belong to.      I wanted to make sure that our Community Was aware:

Health Alert: Hep A
Nearly 50 reported cases of Hepatitis A in California and other states may be linked to contaminated Townsend Farmers Organic Anti-Oxidant frozen berries sold at Costco markets, according to the CDC. If you have consumed this product, or if you experience any signs or symptoms of Hepatitis, contact your personal physician immediately for treatment. Read the latest information from the CDC as well as what you should do if you've eaten these berries.

The Hepatitis A vaccine is available at your MemorialCare Medical Group physician's office or Memorialcare HealthExpress.The HealthExpress clinics, located inside select Albertsons stores in Huntington Beach, Irvine and Mission Viejo, offer convenient, walk-in care seven days a week. No appointment necessary. Most PPO insurances accepted as well as HMO plans through MemorialCare Medical Group. For locations, hours or more information, go to MemorialCare.org/HealthExpress.
