The Food and Drug Administration said on Friday that it had identified
another product contaminated with Hepatitis A, which was the cause of a
recall of frozen organic berries earlier this month.
As a result, the Scenic Fruit Company of Gresham, Ore., has recalled
three different lots of its Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate
Kernels, which were shipped from February through May to United Natural
Foods Inc. distribution centers in 12 states – California, Colorado,
Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Washington.
The F.D.A. said
the centers might have distributed the pomegranate seeds to grocery stores in other states.
