About half of the 119 confirmed case patients in the Costco Townsend Farms berry blend outbreak were treated for Hepatitis A at hospitals, but so far no one has died. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is continuing to investigate the outbreak and has begun testing contents of Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend with a special protocol. Since the first case patient experienced an onset of symptoms on March 31, the outbreak has spanned nearly 3 months. New cases have tapered off since news of the Costco food poisoning and Townsend Farms recall has filtered out to the public.
Legal help for victims is still available for those who are interested in holding the responsible companies accountable. The Bad Bug Law Team at Pritzker Olsen Attorneys already has filed one hepatitis lawsuit against Costco and Townsend Farms and is continuing to accept additional cases.

The CDC's late June 2013 update on this outbreak counts 53 hospitalizations among the 119 confirmed case patients sickened in six southwestern states and Hawaii. The recalled Townsend Farms berry blend was distributed to 12 states in all, but illnesses have been limited to the states of California (61), Colorado (24), Arizona (16), New Mexico (5), Nevada (5), Utah (3), and Hawaii (5). Acute hepatitis food poisoning is a contagious liver disease that can have long-lasting health consequences. Even if your illness was not life-threatening, you could still stand to recover significant compensation with the help of an attorney.
