Costco has issued a recall of its frozen berry mixture amid fears the products may be contaminated with hepatitis A, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Wednesday.
Its recall comes just days after Kroger grocery stores recalled its similar Private Selection Triple Berry Medley.
So far, the potentially affected berries all came from manufacturer Townsend Farms, which informed Costco and Kroger its blackberries - used in both blends - may have been exposed to hepatitis A.
Hepatitis A can be prevented, if those exposed have gotten vaccinated against the virus.
But in recent years it has been on the rise in the US - exponentially so, in fact.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hepatitis A outbreaks used to be a once-in-a-decade occurrence.
Between 2016 and 2018, however, cases of hepatitis A surged by 300 percent in the US.
