Hepatitis A numbers linked to Townsend Farms Keep Clicking Up

Hello from London.  I arrived about six hours ago – just in time to shower, shave and head to my speech at the Royal Institute of Public Health.  Now it is a pint in a pub with WiFi.

Looking back across the pond, the CDC continues to compile Hepatitis A numbers.  As of June 25, 2013, 122 people have been confirmed to have become ill from Hepatitis A after eating ‘Townsend Farms Organic Anti-oxidant Blend’ in 8 states: Arizona (17), California (62), Colorado (25), Hawaii (5), New Mexico (5), Nevada (5), Utah (2), and Wisconsin (1). [Note: The one case reported from Wisconsin resulted from exposure to the product in California.]
