June 5, 2013

Turns out the frozen berries that I have been putting in my smoothies for the past few months are linked to a big Hepatitis A outbreak.  How nice.  I first read about this while we were still in Hawaii.  I actually bought the exact same product at Costco in Hawaii so that I could make my smoothies every morning.  Since we've been home I've had two calls from Costco warning me about the outbreak and cautioning me to see my doctor if I have eaten any of the berries within the last 10 days.  Symptoms can appear anywhere from 15 to 50 days after being infected.  For some reason I'm not really worried, though maybe I should be since I've consumed at least two whole bags in the past month.
