Local public health officials are offering Hepatitis A vaccination to anyone who has consumed the “recalled” product “Natures Touch Organic Blend.”
The Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit made the announcement today after an investigation led to a recall of the Nature’s Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend of frozen berries sold at Costco, due to concerns about Hepatitis A.
The health unit will offer the publicly funded vaccination to people who have consumed the “recalled” product within the last 14 days.
Program manager for Communicable Disease Control Bill Sherlock says symptoms of the Hepatitis A vary.
Costco is currently contacting customers who purchased the recalled product.
To book an appointment to receive the Hepatitis A vaccine, you can call Hastings Prince Edward Public Health at 613-966-5500 ext. 313.
