Birmingham, AL -

A recall alert  from the Food and Drug Administration warns consumers about a frozen berry mix and hepatitis.

Townsend Farms of Oregon has recalled a frozen berry mix linked to an outbreak of hepatitis A that has affected at least 34 people in five states

The recall involves the company's frozen Organic Antioxidant Blend, which is packaged under the Townsend Farms label at Costco and under the Harris Teeter brand at those stores.

The recall came three days after federal officials first announced a suspected link between the frozen berry mix and the illnesses in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada.  

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the outbreak involves a strain of hepatitis A rarely seen in North or South America, but which is found in North Africa and the Middle East.
